In many sub-Saharan African countries, a pressing issue is boosting rice production because the growth in domestic rice production is insufficient for the increase in consumption. To contribute to solving this issue, Nagoya University and Kenya Agricultural Research Institute (KARI) in collaboration with other Japanese and Kenyan research institutions are undertaking an international joint research project "The project on rice research for tailor-made breeding and cultivation technology development in Kenya". The project aims to develop rice varieties carrying useful genes/QTLs to overcome stress conditions in Kenya, and cultivation technologies that maximize the potential of individual rice varieties. In this symposium, after introducing present situations of rice production and progress of rice research in Africa, we intend to discuss the possibility for generating new paradigm of rice science by studying rice production in Africa.
