Introduction:

This special issue of Cahiers Agricultures presents a sample of the research results of the francophone rice research community and its partners within the GRiSP initiative. English and French articles are compiled on a series of specific subject areas and skills, as diverse as dynamics in policy development, rice quality assessment, pest and disease control, small rice farm viability, varietal diversity, irrigation costs, etc. The diversity of subjects shows that rice research today is multi-disciplinarily, embracing genetics, agronomy, ecology, agricultural and economic policies.
