The flood plains around Ambatondrazaka have been a rice granary for centuries. Asian rice arrived more than 2,000 years ago, carried across the Indian Ocean on its first known trip out of Asia. This long history of cultivation in Madagascar’s many different environments has made the island’s rice just as unique as its people, cultures, and ecosystems. It is now recognized as one of the world’s two major secondary centers of rice diversity.

A farmer plows the land with oxen at the Agustina Farm in Morales, Cauca. A drought fueled by the El Niño phenomenon in 2015 forced farmers to delay planting cassava in Cauca, leaving fields bare far into the growing season. As such disruptions become more frequent under climate change, farmers will need more cassava varieties that are both drought tolerant and fast-growing enough to plant whenever the rain arrives.
