South Asian Study of the Effect of Atmospheric CO2 Enrichment on Rice Varieties

This project is geared towards capacity building and generation of awareness among scientists and policy makers in South Asia for CO2 enriched rice research. The grant made available under the earlier project has been used to spread know-how, through a training workshop in September-October 1999 and a post experimental workshop with policy makers in February 2000 on use of open top chambers and mid-FACE for growing rice under an elevated CO2 environment. A hardware kit needed for installing an open top chamber was also distributed to each participating country, i.e. Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka.
