Achim Dobermann, deputy director general for research at the International Rice Research Institute, and Leigh Vial, head of IRRI’s experiment station, discuss and demonstrate laser leveling in a 25 x 100-meter field on IRRI’s research farm. This is the first step in establishing a productive rice crop.
By levelling the plots, the water will be kept longer within the field, the run-of will be reduced.
