Rice covers most of Asia's best agricultural land and uses vast quantities of water, two vital resources that are increasingly in short supply. With the number of people in the world rising exponentially, rice farmers will have to cultivate and harvest rice with less labor, land, and time than they have in the past. Reviews how science and technology are solving this supply-and-demand problem. Accessibility options on the DVD are: (1) expanded description, (2) English subtitles in a black box.
