This documentary describes the use of System of Rice Intensification (SRI) method in growing of rice whose aim is to develop a flexible and farmer friendly technology that will boost productivity, enhance water use thus reducing crop production cost and in effect increasing income which is vital in high investment irrigation production systems.
SRI is a work in progress, and improvements are continually being adopted, such as better implements and techniques that further reduce labor requirements. The majority of surveys so far show a clear increase in yields. Advocates of the method encourage farmers to make their own improvements in SRI methods and share experiences within the world wide farming community.
