The rice production has a strategic importance for the food security of the Dominican people. This is why the country, as a way of seeking alternatives and management and production mechanisms to achieve higher levels of production with the use of less input, has been, since 2015, supporting the development of the project “Growing more with less: Adaptation, validation and promotion of Intensive Rice Farming System (SICA) in the Americas as a response to climate change.” This project, which is developed with financial resources from the FONTAGRO Program is implemented in both Colombia and the Dominican Republic ending in December 2017.
