Traditionally, the paddy fields in Korea, besides rice production, have multifunction such as water supplement source to ground water and prevention of floods via securing the rainfall during a monsoon season. Therefore, the development of food production technology to be adapted in the future climate change in Korea has to take into account the integration of the multi-function of paddy fields with IT, BT, and NT. This demands forward movements in agriculture paradigm as followings. First of all, a national strategy is necessary to maintain and conserve the agricultural farmlands. Second the agricultural structure needs to shift to low carbon green agriculture taking into account the energy balance. Third our attitude needs to be changed toward maximizing the multifunction of the paddy farming.
