Why make the switch?

Climate-Friendly Rice
  • Climate-friendly rice cultivation mulches rice straw back into the ground and minimizes flooding organic matter.
  • This avoids emissions from burning, reduces methanogenesis, and increases soil organic carbon up to 0.5 mtCO2e/acre.
  • A pilot project with McKaskle Family Farm demonstrated a 72% reduction in methane emissions relative to the state average.

Conventional Rice
  • Field burning to remove excess rice straw after harvest releases greenhouse gases.
  • Many U.S. farms burn their fields.
  • Straw burning causes community pollution and decreases lung function.
  • Flooding rice straw and rice stubble causes methanogenesis, releasing potent methane emissions.
