The International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) South Asia Regional Center (ISARC), in collaboration with national research organizations, has completed an Asian Development Bank-supported pilot project on climate-smart agricultural practices involving direct-seeded rice and alternate wetting and drying technologies with intercropping of vegetables between rice seasons and other appropriate crop management practices in Cambodia, Nepal, and Bangladesh.

Application of these technologies using seeds of recommended variety in the pilot areas resulted in savings in water and labor cost and increased yield.
