The report describes the second year of research by the Rice Research Program conducted cooperatively at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Environmental Research Laboratory in Corvallis (ERL-C), Oregon, USA, and at the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) at Los Banos, the Philippines. It covers the period October 1, 1991 through September 30, 1992. The report first describes the overall framework and organization of the project. The second year of the program saw continued progress in the characterization of impacts of increasing ultraviolet-B radiation and climate change on the wetland rice ecosystem. The next three years of the project will see a continuation of the intensive modeling and research activities to assess the effects of UV-B and global climate change on rice productivity. Such research is essential if productivity is to be sustained and increased in a changing global climate.
