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.

ETHIOPIA: The System of Tef Intensification (STI)

Poster:  The System of Tef Intensification (STI): Modifying crop management for greater food security in Ethiopia. Authors: Tareke Berhe, Ayele G. Ayetenfisu and Norman Uphoff. Presented October 13, 2015, at the 2nd International Conference on Global Food Security at Cornell University.

SRI-Rice's insight:

Tef is an important food grain in Ethiopia. The System of Tef Intensification described here is an adaptation of SRI principles to tef production.
