FUTONG ADJUSTED WATER MANAGEMENT IN RICE CULTIVATION
IN RICE CULTIVATION
The project is located in Fuyang District and Tonglu County, Zhejiang Province of China, focus on rice crop, change the often flooded to intermittent flooded condition, have a total acreage of 12,300 ha for single crop rice.
The method is make grooves to conduct intermittent flooded, so the scenario that rice was cropped through flooded method is the baseline scenario, the grooves concrete, reservoirs and relevant technical training prove a enormous help for farmers them conduct the intermittent flooded water regime during rice crop, which replaces the traditional flooded method.
From another side the organic matter in rice soil under flooded condition can emit a large amount of methane (CH4) because of anaerobic decomposition, the intermittent flooded method improve this condition to water conservation, production increase and methane emission removal than the continuously flooded.
The implementation of this project expected to reduce the GHG emissions amounting to 419,601 tCO2e in the first 7 year monitoring period with an annual average GHG emission reduction of 59,943 tCO2e.
