Rice is one of the three leading food crops in the world. It is semi-aquatic crop, requires ample water to grow. For producing one kg rice, it requires 3000 to 5000 liters of water, which is much higher than requirement of wheat and maize. Climate change and water scarcity threatens the sustainability of irrigated rice cultivation. Increasing global population actuate scientists to explore various techniques for increasing crop productivity. In this situation, rice scientists are focused on different water saving technologies to get more yields with less water.
Key words: Rice, Water scarcity, Aerobic Rice, SRI, Hydrogel.
