The System of Rice Intensification's Role in Hunger, Climate Change, and Communities | SRI Global News: Nov. 2023 - Jan. 2024 ** -- System of Rice Intensification |

Norman Uphoff is the Senior Advisor for the SRI International Network and Resources Center (SRI-Rice), a program at Cornell University engaged with the System of Rice Intensification (SRI), which is a climate-smart, yield-increasing agriculture methodology that is being utilized by more than 10 million smallholder farms in over 55 countries.  ..."The ideas and practices that constituted our modern agriculture in the latter half of the 20th century will not, I am afraid, serve us equally well in this 21st century, which has very different and changing economic, social, institutional and environmental conditions. I see SRI and SCI as pointing the way to what could be characterized as a ‘post-modern agriculture,’ which is a needed advance beyond our present knowledge and practices. These ideas and methods are still evolving, but innovation is no longer coming just from scientific institutions and universities, but also from civil society and farmers themselves. This is both an exciting and a necessary shift in strategy."
