This study discusses practice of the System of Rice Intensification (SRI) and suggests specific mechanization option/approaches for its mechanization. Much of the focus on agricultural research improvement efforts in recent decades has been on modifying crops' genetic potential more than on improving cropping practices, mechanization, automation and production systems. SRI has shown that modifying crop, soil, water, intensive weeding and nutrient management, can under most of the circumstances evaluated raise the productivity of land, water, seeds, capital and labour used for irrigated rice production. However, SRI practices such as paddy nursery, single seedling transplanting, single direct seeding, water management and intensive mechanical weeding requires specific mechanization approaches. This study summarizes and reflects on the cultivation practices and possible specific mechanization and automation through mechatronics and Information Technology application of SRI.
