Practising SRI on the field

I am sharing my experiences about SRI . I have planted BHAVANI traditional variety rice for 2 acres. From LEISAINDIA I got the idea and details. Some details from Pasumaivikatan, a tamil magazine.
 
In SRI paddy, we need only 2 kg seeds per acre, weeding becomes easier with cono weeder. It creates aerobic conditions in the soil, increases disease resistance. I got yield nearly 20 quintals per acre which is 100% organic. SRI is a gift for organic cultivation
