The US Environmental Protection Agency and International Rice Research Institute are initiating a cooperative program on the effects of UV-B and global climate change (increased CO2 and temperature) on rice. Rice is the world's most important food crop and responds both to UV-B and climate change. The project will determine: (1) the effects of these stresses on the rice ecosystem, (2) the extent and intensity of those effects for Asia, (3) the importance of the rice ecosystem as a source of biogenic emissions such as methane and the impacts of environmental stress on those emissions, and (4) mitigation/adaptation options available to reduce any effects on rice yields and biogenic emissions.
