System of crop intensification for more productive, resource-conserving, climate-resilient, and sustainable agriculture: experience with diverse crops in varying agroecologies

System of crop intensification for more productive, resource-conserving, climate-resilient, and sustainable agriculture: experience with diverse crops in varying agroecologies | SRI Global News: Nov. 2023 - Jan. 2024 **sririce.org -- System of Rice Intensification | Scoop.it

[This article has been made open-access by SRI-Rice] "The ideas and methods of the system of rice intensification which is improving irrigated rice production are now being extended/adapted to many other crops: wheat, maize, finger millet, sugarcane, tef, mustard, legumes, vegetables, and even spices. Promoting better root growth and enhancing the soil’s fertility with organic materials are being found effective means for raising the yields of many crop plants with less water, less fertilizer, reduced seeds, fewer agrochemicals, and greater climate resilience. In this article, we review what is becoming known about various farmer-centred innovations for agroecological crop management that can contribute to agricultural sustainability. These changes represent the emerging system of crop intensification, which is being increasingly applied in Asian, African, and Latin American countries.

CUBA: SRI-Inspired Sustainable Sugarcane Initiative (SSI/SiCAS) Continues to Spread

CUBA: SRI-Inspired Sustainable Sugarcane Initiative (SSI/SiCAS) Continues to Spread | SRI Global News: Nov. 2023 - Jan. 2024 **sririce.org -- System of Rice Intensification | Scoop.it

Rena Pérez reported on progress with the Sustainable Sugarcane Initiative (SSI, or SiCAS in Spanish), a methodology adapted from SRI principles. Two years after her 2012 presentation (see article) on SiCAS to Cuba's sugarcane industry, Perez learned of a sugarcane cooperative in Las Tunas that had adapted the SiCAS methods in a dry part of the island to use three-bud setts, which both reduced the required planting material and increased the yields...
