NEW YORK, USA: New tech for an ancient food | Cornell Engineering

NEW YORK, USA: New tech for an ancient food | Cornell Engineering | SRI Global News: Nov. 2023 - Jan. 2024 **sririce.org -- System of Rice Intensification | Scoop.it

In 2013, associate professor Derek Warner began working with the U.S. Navy, supporting their effort to 3-D print flight-critical components for the V-22 Osprey aircraft. After  thinking about other applications for custom 3-D printing, he sent an email to Cornell’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and received a response from Erika Styger at SRI-Rice. Warner then sent his doctoral student, Wenjia Gu, to Colombia to investigate more. At an SRI gathering of farmers from several South American countries she then had an opportunity to showcase a 3-D printer and a plastic prototype she had printed. It was a rotor that could be used to retrofit a weeder. With rapid prototyping, according to Gu, farmers could quickly test different designs and make adjustments based on trial and error...

Vietnam: Efficient rice farming to curb emissions - News VietNamNet

Vietnam: Efficient rice farming to curb emissions - News VietNamNet | SRI Global News: Nov. 2023 - Jan. 2024 **sririce.org -- System of Rice Intensification | Scoop.it
To achieve the target, the ministry will use the System of Rice Intensification (SRI), a plan in which farmers will increase productivity, quality and economic effectiveness, while reducing pesticides and nitrogenous fertilisers.
SRI-Rice's insight:

Mai Van Trinh, director of  Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development's Institute for Agricultural Environment emphasizes SRI among new water- and cost-efficient farming techniques that will allow Viet Nam to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in wet rice production by 15 to 20 per cent by 2020.
