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.
