Rice yields in Africa are low but this can be reversed with good management practices. For example, the yields can double and even triple when rice is transplanted as opposed to broadcasting.
This farmer to farmer video produced by the Africa Rice Center shows farmers how to transplant seeds of lowland rice.
It is part of a set of four videos on weed management for lowland rice produced by the Center as part of the early-win projects of the Africa RISING project.

It is also available in French and Swahili.
