System for Rice Intensification, SRI (I)

Organic methods yield increased rice crop yields

PART I: SRI is part of the answer to the global food supply problem. Using techniques taught in this video, farmers have been known to increase rice crop yields by an astounding 200-300%...but yet the techniques require no new technology or any heavy investment in machinery. These techniques are all about discarding traditional ways that rice crops have been grown and using new methods which optimise plant strength.

A must see for small crop farmers of any nationality. They could easily adopt these techniques for their soil conditions! This video was made by ADRA New Zealand (Adventist Development and Relief Agency).
