HAITI: Household-level Impact Evaluation for SRI in the Artibonite Valley Completed

HAITI: Household-level Impact Evaluation for SRI in the Artibonite Valley Completed | SRI Global News: Nov. 2023 - Jan. 2024 **sririce.org -- System of Rice Intensification | Scoop.it

A household impact evaluation led by University of California, Davis, and the Haitian State University FAMV found that while improved rice production techniques do result in significantly higher yields, in Haiti SRI requires 25% more labor than traditional methods. The increased expense for labor means that SRI does not necessarily leave most households better off, although those with access to relatively inexpensive household labor do experience a positive impact on revenue. Two public events to disseminate and discuss the research results were held in Haiti during early December.  [See also Oxfam document (http://bit.ly/2lcHK94) and video (in Creole) http://bit.ly/2l8avUs

HAITI: Bon metod pou plante diri

Bon jan method pou plante diri! -Creole language video about SRI in the Feed The Future Haiti Chanje Lavi Plantèr project in Haiti.

SRI-Rice's insight:

You don't need to speak Creole to enjoy this video. Watch the whole thing and you will learn some things about using SRI methods that you never knew!

Depuis plusieurs années, pour essayer d’accroître la production rizicole, certains chercheurs utilisent une technique dénommée Système de Riziculture intensive (SRI). Le système est perçu comme une réponse au phénomène de changement climatique. En Haïti, dans la Vallée de l’Artibonite plus précisément, des techniciens s’apprêteraient à expérimenter le SRI selon des responsables.

Haitian Rice Farmers Double Their Yields | U.S. Agency for International Development

Haitian Rice Farmers Double Their Yields | U.S. Agency for International Development | SRI Global News: Nov. 2023 - Jan. 2024 **sririce.org -- System of Rice Intensification | Scoop.it

“I would have never imagined that it was possible for me to harvest 5 to 6 tons of rice on one single hectare of land—it’s such an extraordinary feat for me.” - Leo Andres Pablo Julson.

SRI-Rice's insight:

This USAID-sponsored project, Feed the Future (FTF) West, has been successful in doubling yields for some of the farmers in Haiti. Hopefully SRI will continue to spread there on its own as the project is apparently ending in May.
