      Abstract

      To anticipate the rapid increase of wetland paddy field function changes, rice cultivation in polybags had been performed using irrigation methods combined with SRI (system of rice intensification). The experiment was carried out using drip irrigation, watering and no watering treatments. The amount of water supply was adequate to plant water requirements (ETP) which were determined using Blaney-Criddle model. Observation was done on wetland and upland paddy fields. The results showed that in terms of plant growth, productivity per plant grove and grain weight there were no significant differences between those grown both in upland and wetland paddy fields. Thus, rice cultivation in polybags could be an alternative solution when rice production in paddy fields is not possible anymore. Keywords: Rice, Polybags, Drip irrigation, Production
