(Part A) Producing More Crops per Drop: An Innovative Way of Rice Cultivation

System of Rice Intensification (known as SRI) is a set of rice farming practices developed to increase the productivity of land and water. Experience and trials from across regions show that SRI can increase rice yields using less water, labor and other farm inputs. SRI crops display features such as, greater resistance to drought conditions, wind damage, and other climate challenges, hence making them more resilient to changing climate and to increasing competition for water. SRI has been seen as a Climate-Smart Agriculture practice with proven results.

This learning component include two parts. Part A presents the basic principles of SRI, advantages and constraints of applying SRI. Part B presents a step-by-step guidance of how-to apply SRI to practitioners.

Research in Indonesia said SRI proved some benefit i.e increased the the yield by 80 % and reduced water consumption by 40 % , reduced fertilizer consumption by 50%, reduced production cost b 201%, and eventually benefiting the environment. Amazing. Has this innovation well accepted and implemented widely here in Indonesia ?
