System of Rice Intensification, popularly known as SRI, is described in various ways – as a knowledge intensive alternative, an innovation, an approach etc. SRI is being accepted by large number of farmers…who are not only realising the benefits but also sharing their learning’s with others.
SRI principles are now being adapted to various other crops too. NGOs in partnership with enthusiastic donors, and few state government’s too are popularizing the alternative.
However, support at national policy level has been limited. A wide gamut of experiences sharing how SRI is working and spreading are presented in this issue.
