System of Rice Intensification (SRI)

System of Rice Intensification (SRI) “over 1 million resource-poor rice farmers in 42 countries are using SRI methods. Higher yields per unit of land frees up land to grow more nutrient-diverse and higher market value crops and protects parks and wildlife.” SRI enables farmers to increase yields of their traditional varieties by 50-100% (or more) using 25-50% less water, 80-90% less seed, and with few or no purchased agro-chemical inputs.”
