It consists of data on rice planting and harvesting dates by growing season and estimates of monthly production for all rice-producing countries. Sources used for planting and harvesting dates include global…Read more

We evaluated all-cause and breast cancer-specific survival using stage-stratified Cox proportion…Read more
