LATIN AMERICA: Arroz Resiliente del Futuro para ALC

LATIN AMERICA: Arroz Resiliente del Futuro para ALC | SRI Global News: Nov. 2023 - Jan. 2024 **sririce.org -- System of Rice Intensification | Scoop.it

El proyecto busca aumentar la productividad del cultivo del arroz a través del uso del SICA, mejorando las condiciones productivas, sustentabilidad, rentabilidad y seguridad alimentaria de la AF de Chile, Venezuela, Panamá y Argentina. Atendiendo la demanda social por alimentos producidos en sistemas de manejo sustentables, que consideren la preservación de los recursos naturales con un menor impacto ambiental. Implementando y escalando un conjunto de prácticas de manejo específicas para cada región que permitan una mayor adaptación del cultivo al cambio climático.

SRI-Rice's insight:

This project trains technicians and producers linked to the rice sector in LAC on the System of Rice Intensification (SRI), to increase productivity and sustainability while reducing costs and inputs in Chile, Venezuela, Panama and Argentina. The Project is executed with the support of FONTAGRO, and leadership of INIA Chile, with the co-execution of IDIAP of Panama and INTA Argentina and in partnership with IICA, FLAR, UNER, UNL and FUNDARROZ from Venezuela.

LATIN AMERICA: Adopting the System of Rice Intensification (SRI) for climate change and producing more with less resources

LATIN AMERICA: Adopting the System of Rice Intensification (SRI) for climate change and producing more with less resources | SRI Global News: Nov. 2023 - Jan. 2024 **sririce.org -- System of Rice Intensification | Scoop.it

 Rice is a staple food for the population of Latin America and the Caribbean, where it is grown in 26 countries in the region. In order to help overcome the low productivity of traditional rice systems, IICA partnered with the Dominican Council of Agricultural and Forestry Research (CONIAF), the Dominican Institute of Agricultural Research and Forestry (IDIAF) and the National Rice Federation (FEDEARROZ) of Colombia, to implement a project on SRI aimed at reducing vulnerability and promoting adaptation of farmers to the biophysical and economic effects of climate change. The System of Rice Intensifcation was validated with the participation of producers in thirteen plots in the Dominican Republic and Colombia.

COLOMBIA y REPÚBLICA DOMINICANA: Foro virtual sobre: Sistema Intensivo del Cultivo Arrocero (SRI) en las Américas como una respuesta al cambio climático | IICA - EUROCLIMA

Presentar (25 de mayo del 2017 a las 9:00 a.m. hora, Costa Rica) la metodología del SRI, como una buena práctica en adaptación y mitigación que busca abordar de forma conjunta los desafíos de la producción sostenible y rentable de alimentos para fortalecer la seguridad alimentaria de la población en Latinoamérica a la vez que reduce las emisiones.
Como una medida de adaptación y respuesta ante ante el cambio climático, el Sistema Intensivo del Cultivo del Arroz (SRI, por sus siglas del inglés), se basa en ciertos principios básicos que permiten brindar un manejo racional, diferenciado y eficiente al cultivo, suelo y agua de forma tal que se fomenta un ambiente sano y mejorado que favorece la productividad y sostenibilidad del arrozal.

(see pages 24-31)

Conclusiones:
El sistema SRI favorece la expresi6n del potencial de macollamiento de la planta y su crecimiento radical con respecto al trasplante convencional. El rendimiento potencial del sistema SRI es mayor, de manera que es fundamental lograr un adecuado establecimiento del cultivo.  Es posible reducir el consumo de agua en el sistema SRI.

SRI-Rice's insight:

Gabriel Garces Varon.  2018. Resultados Promisorios del Sistema Intensivo del Cultivo del Arroz (SRI) en el Tolima. Arroz 66(536): 24-31. (to see this article, go to page 24 of the attached magazine):

Conclusions: The SRI system favors the expression of the tillering potential of the plant and its radical growth with respect to conventional transplantation. The potential yield of the SRI system is greater, so it is essential to achieve an adequate establishment of the crop.It is possible to reduce the water consumption in the SRI system.

COLOMBIA and DOMINICAN REPUBLIC: SRI in Latin America to Help Address Climate Change

COLOMBIA and DOMINICAN REPUBLIC: SRI in Latin America to Help Address Climate Change | SRI Global News: Nov. 2023 - Jan. 2024 **sririce.org -- System of Rice Intensification | Scoop.it

The project, Cultivate More with Less: Adaptation, validation and promotion of the System of Rice Intensification (SRI) in the Americas as a response to climate change, has successfully completed its first year. Financed by FONTAGRO and the GEF, the project is being executed by a consortium of partners including FEDERARROZ, CONIAF, IDIAF and IICA.

Five validation parcels with their respective controls, established in smallholder producers’ fields in Colombia and the Dominican Republic, have completed their first production cycle showing promising results.  Almost 150 producers and technicians have been trained and many more have been exposed to the innovation.
