Rice paddies on a dry day in October in Kurra, Tana Toraja, South Sulawesi, Indonesia. Higher temperatures caused by global warming are projected to reduce rice crop yields in Indonesia. Changes in El Nino patterns, that impact the onset and length of the wet season, are also sending agricultural production to a vulnerable status. Developing new, or improved local rice varieties that more resilient--echoing recent studies in other countries--could be one of the keys to mitigate.

Toraja, South Sulawesi, Indonesia: More climate-resilient rice varieties needed Higher temperatures caused by global warming are projected to reduce rice crop yields in Indonesia. Changes in El Nino patterns, that impact the onset and length of the wet season, are also sending agricultural production to a vulnerable status. Developing new, or improved local rice varieties that more resilient--echoing recent studies in other countries--could be one of the keys to mitigate.
