Rice yield gaps

According to a yield gap assessment of rice granaries in Asia, the exploitable or attainable yield gap is substantial, ranging
from 1 to 3.6 tons/ha.

In Southeast Asia alone, closing this rice yield gap would increase total annual production of milled rice by an estimated 55 million tons, providing additional food for some 500 million people.

The Closing Rice Yield Gaps in Asia with Reduced Environmental Footprint (CORIGAP) Project aims to improve food security and alleviate poverty by reducing rice yield gaps in six major irrigated rice granaries in Asia.
