Head to Head Adaptive Trial (HHAT) of Modern Rice Varieties” under the TRB project of BRRI

Implementation of Head to Head Adaptive Trial (HHAT) of Modern Rice Varieties” under the TRB project of BRRI in Boro 2021-2022 season in Bangladesh by Agribusiness Education and Research International.

Agribusiness Education and Research International also successfully implemented the trial titled “Head to Head Adaptive Trial (HHAT) of Modern Rice Varieties” under the TRB project of Bangladesh Rice Research Institute (BRRI) in Boro 2020-2021 season, Aman 2021 season in Bangladesh.

 Agribusiness Education and Research International (AERI) has been also implementing the trial titled “Head to Head Adaptive Trial (HHAT) of Modern Rice Varieties(IRRIBRRI Protocol)” under Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Science and Technology University in Boro 2021-2022 season in Bangladesh.

Rice is a staple food for more than half of the world’s population, including the 135 million people who call Bangladesh home. For the average person in the country, rice accounts for almost half of all rural jobs, two-thirds of total calorie supply, and one-half of total protein consumption. Rice is grown by around 13 million families on 10.5 million hectares across the country. Rice is grown on over 75% of the total farmed area and over 80% of the total irrigated area. Bangladesh Rice Research Institute (BRRI) was founded in 1970 with the goal of developing contemporary rice varieties that are better adapted to local growing conditions and enhanced production procedures that have won it a high reputation in Bangladesh and throughout the world.

Through the introduction of high-yielding rice and wheat varieties, chemical fertilizers and pesticides, and the extension of tubewell-irrigated territory, Bangladesh’s agricultural system was changed, allowing crop production during the dry season. However, severe issues like land scarcity due to high population density, imbalanced fertilizer and pesticide use, and large seasonal variations in water supply – from drought to sluggish flood conditions – continue to afflict the agriculture industry. Bangladesh’s Ministry of Agriculture is looking to expand irrigated land, notably through continuous construction and enhancement of surface water systems, to address many of the country’s remaining difficulties. However, such expansion is not without dangers or repercussions, and development goals must be guided by a thorough examination of who benefits from irrigation and how.

Through the display of diverse varietal features in conjunction with their own agronomic management practices, the trial will provide farmers more confidence in selecting the best product for their region or community. The following are some varietal traits and agronomic management practices that will offer the farmer and their neighbors more confidence:

Varietal characteristics:

Growing season, Growth duration, Ecosystem, Tolerance, Plant height, leaf arrangement, yield potential, grain size, shape, and color.

Agronomic Management:

Seed and seedbed preparation, seedling uprooting, use of optimum aged seedling, Land preparation, Balanced fertilization, Optimum irrigation, Weed management, Insect and disease management, Timely harvesting, etc.
