Under SRI, the use of organic matter is encouraged. This preserves plants potential for tillering and root growth that is reduced by transplanting later. Under SRI, planting distances start at 25 cm and may even be greater. Transplanting the seedlings while still young, e.
Correct implementation of the various, interdependent components SRI practices requires considerable field experience in which close observation and timeliness are crucial in minimizing labor requirements while maximizing total factor productivity.
They are to be applied with adjustments in specific practices like spacing and timing as appropriate to local conditions.

This system seems to be promising to overcome the shortage of water in irrigated rice The SRI appear to be a viable alternate for rice cultivation that saves expensive inputs, improves soil health besides optimum water-use efficiency.
Reduced or no need for chemical fertilizers 9. Careful transplanting promotes rapid resumption of growth. SRI is still evolving and it is hoped that the scientific community will collaborate in further refining the SRI practices and working out the scientific reasons for the reported higher productivity.
Farmers are used to transplanting 3-week old rice seedlings or older. The method was initially developed in Madagascar by a Jesuit agriculturist, Fr. Poisons are minimized and can be avoided altogether, giving common farm organisms like mudfish, snails, crabs, frogs, etc.
Another important aspect in SRI is to keep the soil both moist and aerated, at least during the vegetative growth period, so that roots have access to both oxygen and water. We need to be looking for alternatives to existing practices with an open mind. System of Rice Intensification: Farmers are used to planting distances of 15 cm or closer.
Under SRI, a mechanical weeder is used instead, not only to control weeds but also to aerate the soil. Farmers are used to flooding their fields. The increase in yield, coupled with reduced cost, means greater income for the farmer. Not expensive, but challenging because it involves a major change in mindset.
Careful water management keeping the field wet and not flooded gives better yield as it supports healthy root growth. Direct seeding is an option, however, since what is important is that plant roots should not be traumatized after they start their growth trajectory, on or about the 15th day.
Increased grain filling 4. Planting young seedlings carefully and at wider spacing gives the plant more time and space for tillering and root growth.Nov 01, · A new method of growing rice is now spreading in many rice-producing countries.
It is called the System of Rice Intensification (SRI). The method was initially developed in Madagascar by a Jesuit agriculturist, Fr. Henri de Laulanie and continues to be refined by thousands of researchers and farmers all over the world.
In the Philippines. The System of Rice Intensification (SRI) is an innovation in rice production systems that is still evolving and ramifying, but already it is raising factor productivity and incomes for more than 1 million small farmers producing rice around the world on over 1 million.
on the same culm, has been used extensively to describe and understand development of rice plant. The purpose of this paper is to identify the phyllochron development stage through modified rice mat nursery and different planting pattern (Using rolling marker) in System of Rice Intensification technique.
The SRI Research Network. SRI-Rice sponsors the System of Rice Intensification (SRI) Research Network on Zotero as of January 1, ! (We are still maintaining the Mendeley database for those who would like follow our research on that platform, though the RefWorks databse is no longer active).
Those who join the SRI Research Network on Zotero can read (and often download) research papers from. System of Rice Intensification (SRI): Practices and Results in the Philippines Abstract This paper traces briefly the origins of the System of Rice Intensification (SRI) in Madagascar.
