SRI RICE FARMER IN INDIA { 3 images } Created 31 Oct 2013

SRI (System of Rice Intensification) is an organic system of intensively growing crops that can double yields.

Using SRI, Amar Singh and his family produce enough rice for all of their annual needs from only 1.5 acres of land. By using SRI Amar Singh never has to spend money on expensive chemicals which degrade the soil. SRI also uses less seed. With fewer inputs Amar Singh has made savings and invested these in his farm. Last year he purchased a new bullock cart. And Amar Singh's grandchildren no longer have to work the land when they should be at school as he did when he was a child.
