rainfed-lowland-rice-in-cambodia-a-baseline-survey

Presents findings of a baseline survey on rainfed lowland rice (RLR) in Cambodia based on interviews with 45 RLR farmers in three provinces. This report describes: 1) the place of RLR in Cambodian rice culture, 2) farmers family composition, family assets, access to labor, and income sources, 3) factors influencing farmers’ crop management and varietal choices, including the size of landholding, field levels and related soil and water problems, farmers' classification of rice by maturity, and local varietal preferences based on cooking and eating quality and agronomic performance, and 4) RLR crop management and cropping operations from nursery establishment to harvest and storage. Constraints to intensifying RLR cultivation in Cambodia are discussed and conclusions and recommendations presented.
