System of Rice Intensification (SRI)

This is a technique different from the conventional practices of rice cultivation where rate of production increases but cost of cultivation decreases. Using this technique a farmer can Transplant a 10-12 days old single rice seed ling on field having thin film of water (not submerged condition).

Benefits of this system are as follows:

1.       Low seed rate.

2.       Minimum water use especially in rabi season.  (Average 900 L per Kg of paddy production as compared to 2000 L in conventional level).

3.       High productivity.

4.       Efficient use of fertilizer applied.

Current Status:

 Farmers are very much interested and adapting this technique. Usually they found avg. 30% increase in yield production.
