ETHIOPIA: Intensification and semi-intensification of tef production in Ethiopia: applications of the System of Crop Intensification.

"Future strategies for sustainable food security will need to get greater productivity from available land, labour, water and other resources, producing more food, as much as possible, with reduced inputs. The System of Crop Intensification (SCI) which emerged from an agroecological production strategy developed for rice in Madagascar in the 1980s has shown promise in various countries for raising the yields of diverse crops with less reliance on purchased external inputs, using less seed and needing less water because of enhanced root growth and soil improvement. Here we review the adaptation and application of SCI principles to increasing the production and availability of Ethiopia's most important indigenous grain crop, tef."

ETHIOPIA: The System of Tef Intensification (STI)

Poster:  The System of Tef Intensification (STI): Modifying crop management for greater food security in Ethiopia. Authors: Tareke Berhe, Ayele G. Ayetenfisu and Norman Uphoff. Presented October 13, 2015, at the 2nd International Conference on Global Food Security at Cornell University.

SRI-Rice's insight:

Tef is an important food grain in Ethiopia. The System of Tef Intensification described here is an adaptation of SRI principles to tef production.

ETHIOPIA: Using Less To Get More: Crop Intensification in Ethiopia

ETHIOPIA: Using Less To Get More: Crop Intensification in Ethiopia | SRI Global News: Nov. 2023 - Jan. 2024 **sririce.org -- System of Rice Intensification | Scoop.it

During  2015 and 2016, Buddhist Global Relief partnered with Oxfam America in the Central Rift Valley of Ethiopia to increase the productivity of vegetable crops (tomato and onion) by teaching farmers the System of Crop Intensification (SCI). SCI adapts SRI principles to crops other than rice resulting in increased productivity through the the use of efficient, climate-smart techniques.
