Transforming Rice Production with SRI (System of Rice Intensification) Knowledge and Practice

“Transforming Rice Production with SRI (System of Rice Intensification) Knowledge and Practice” written by Dr. T.M. Thiyagarajan and Dr. Biksham Gujja. This book is an attempt to explain the origin, principles and practices of SRI and the developments so far in communicating the importance of SRI to rice farmers, students, scientists and policy makers so that the material could be used for extension, research and policy support. The contents have been assembled from various sources, especially from SRI websites, WWF-ICRISAT project and its partner organizations and Institutes, presentations made in national SRI symposia, publications and reports on SRI, field visits and interaction with farmers. Below provided is the direct link […]

Report on System of Rice Intensification (2011-2012) – Jharkhand state, India

The report presents the results and outcome of the SRI pilot project supported by NABARD in the State of Jharkhand ove a period of two years, 2010-2012, involving, 34,170 farmers and covering 8,542 acres of paddy-growing area. In all, 52 projects were implemented through 49 project implementing agencies with support from 5 resource agencies in 23 districts in Jharkhand. The incremental food security through SRI over that of traditional method of cultivation ranged from 118 days in the case of the smallest landholding class (<1 acre) to 683 days in the case of the largest landholding class (>2 acres). The yield attributes of paddy following System of Rice Intensification management […]

Crop and water productivity as influenced by rice cultivation methods under organic and inorganic sources of nutrient supply

Crop and water productivity as influenced by rice cultivation methods under organic and inorganic sources of nutrient supply Author by Y.V. Singh, Centre for Conservation and Utilization of Blue Green Algae (CCUBGA), Indian Agricultural Research Institute, New Delhi – 110 012, India, Email: yvsingh63@yahoo.co.in; yvsingh_algal@iari.res.in Source: Paddy and Water Environment [http://www.springerlink.com/content/j483155l860236t1/] Publication Date: 28 August 2012 ABSTRACT A field experiment was conducted during the wet seasons of 2010 and 2011 at New Delhi, India to study the influence of organic, inorganic, and integrated sources of nutrient supply under three methods of rice cultivation on rice yield and water productivity. The experiments were laid out in FRBD with nine treatment combinations. […]

“Nalanda District (Bihar) – World Record SRI yields

“Nalanda District (Bihar) – World Record SRI yields” (page Nos. 1 to 10) Author(s) by M.C. Diwakar, Arvind Kumar, Anil Verma and Dr. Norman Uphoff Experimenting with SRI cultivation, five farmers of Darveshpura village in Bihar attract considerable attention with their bumper yield; the results indicate a viable alternative to the conventional methods of growing rice and other crops.

Impact of the System of Rice Intensification (SRI) – Analysis of SRI practices in 13 states of India

Impact of the System of Rice Intensification (SRI) – Analysis of SRI practices in 13 states of India Author(s): K.Palanisami, K.R.Karunakaran and Upali Amarasinghe The System of Rice Intensification (SRI) – a package of practices designed to grow more rice with less water – is being widely promoted by governments and NGOs in India. In 2010-11, IWMI-Tata Program, in collaboration with local partners, undertook a study covering 2234 rice farmers in 13 major rice growing states to analyze the adoption level and impact of various SRI practices. The results confirm that SRI adopters, on the whole, displayed comparatively higher yield, higher gross margin and lower production costs. However, most ‘SRI […]

Enhancing employment and sustaining production – Framework for Integration of System of Rice Intensification with Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS)

“Enhancing employment and sustaining production – Framework for Integration of System of Rice Intensification with Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS)”, National Consortium on SRI, released for the Round Table Meeting on SRI for the XII Five Year Plan held at CSD in Delhi on 13 January, 2012. This note lays out a framework for supporting SRI under MGNREGS is intended for evolving a programmatic action. It draws insights from field experiences across the country in compiling the options and the framework.

Proceedings of “AP SRI Consortium’s Safe Alternate Wetting and Drying Technology and Water Management in System of Rice Intensification (SRI)

Proceedings of “AP SRI Consortium’s Safe Alternate Wetting and Drying Technology and Water Management in System of Rice Intensification (SRI)” organized by WALAMTARI, IRRC Water-saving workgroup of IRRI and WASSAN held at 3rd October 2012 held at WALAMTARI, Rajendranagar, Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh. In addition to sharing of sharing of experiences of IRRI on Alternate Wetting and Drying (AWD), the meetingwas expected to enable discussions on various options in water savings in rice cultivation. The conclusions were expected to feed into improving the practices of SRI in the JAI-SRI program of the AP SRI Consortium supported by the Department of Agriculture and NABARD. A collaborative action-research program is also expected to emerge […]

A CRITICAL ASSESSMENT OF THE IMPORTANCE OF SEEDLING AGE IN THE SYSTEM OF RICE INTENSIFICATION (SRI) IN EASTERN INDIA

By DEBAL DEB†‡, JÖRG LÄSSIG§ and MARIUS KLOFT¶ †Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies, Kolkata 700123, India, §Institute of Computational Science, University of Lugano, 6906 Lugano, Switzerland and ¶Machine Learning Laboratory, TU Berlin, 10587 Berlin, Germany (Accepted 19 January 2012; First published online 27 February 2012) SUMMARY A survey of the system of rice intensification (SRI)-related literature indicates that different authors have drawn conflicting inferences about rice yield performances under the SRI, chiefly because the SRI methodology has been variously advocated, interpreted and implemented in the field using different rice varieties, seedling ages at transplantation, cultivation seasons and nutrient management regimes. In particular, the SRI method of single-seedling transplantation (SST) has potential economic advantage due to reduced seed costs, […]

Genetic yield potential of rice (Oryza sativa) through water saving and high-yielding SRI technology

SURENDRA K GHRITLAHRE, ASHOK KUMAR SARIAL, and RATTAN SINGH, MANGAT RAM, DES RAJ ANEJA CCS Haryana Agricultural University Campus, Kaul, Haryana 136 021 The system of rice intensification (SRI) that evolved in the 1980s in Madagascar is also gaining popularity in India. SRI saves not only the seed (a seed rate of 5–7 kg/ha as against 25–30 kg/ha for normal) but also saves water (35–40%) as the fields are not inundated continuously. It leads to higher ripening ratio and increases yield by 10–25%. The varietal response to SRI and conventional cultivation is wide.  The system of rice intensification (SRI) that evolved in the 1980s in Madagascar is also gaining popularity in India.  SRI saves not only the seed […]
