At the Central and West Asia Rice Center (CWA-Rice) annual meeting, a virtual training course on Sustainable Rice Production was held, which began with SRI. At the start of the 2021 rice season, the head of CWA-Rice Center decided to implement the SRI system with a unified experiment in three member-countries: Iraq, Turkey, and Azerbaijan.
During the past four rice seasons (2018-2021), the Iraqi Ministry of Agriculture included SRI system in its annual scientific program at the Al-Mishkhab Rice Research Station. The ministry also recognized Distinguished Rice Farmers who practice SRI rice-growing in Iraqi provinces, producing high-grade rice seed with nearly 100% purity.

Oxfam has launched an ambitious System for Crop Intensification (SCI) programme in Tajikistan with a view to transforming crop productivity and the food security landscape in the country. Within the broader framework of SCI, a field trial of System for Rice Intensification (SRI) was carried out in Khatlon region in the summer cropping season of 2018. Preliminary results from the limited trial show an increase in rice productivity of up to 60% using standard SRI methodology (compared with traditional methods). Furthermore, there was a dramatic reduction in the use of seeds, fertilizers and water, which led to a significant cutback in the cost of rice cultivation for farmers.
