Technical Abstract: The signs of global warming are everywhere, and are more complex than just climbing temperatures. Climate change encompasses not only rising average temperatures but also extreme weather events. More frequent extreme weather events and water scarcity across the U.S. make it more expensive and difficult to sustain crop production. Therefore, effective breeding of climate resilient crop cultivars combined with adaptation of crop production systems to better cope with the challenges of future climate change are of key importance. High-throughput genotyping and phenotyping technologies offer a new approach to examine Genetics (Rice and the associated soil microbiome) x Environment x Management interactions for developing climate resilient crop cultivars with enhanced production and quality as a means to mitigate the effects of a changing climate.
