The MyRice project conducted adaptive research on cropping options to increase and sustain productivity of both rice–rice and rice–pulse cropping systems in the Ayeyarwady Delta (Ayeyarwady and Bago regions) in Myanmar from 1 July 2012 to 31 December 2017. The project aimed to improve farmers’ profitability through developing best practises for rice production, including postharvest management and innovative approaches to improve the productivity of rice–rice and rice–pulse cropping systems.

This Final Report is a record of significant interactions between Australian and Egyptian partners in establishing the foundations for a project of significance for Egypt.  In 2010 the Australian Government initiated discussions to build partnerships to support development objectives for Egypt.  Australia provided a socio-economic study of farmers in the Meet Yazid Command area of the Nile Delta to ensure that knowledge of farming systems in that region and the challenges faced by its farmers were strongly and appropriately reflected in the design of a large project on improving productivit
