Introduction to Special Issue: The System of Rice Intensification (SRI) -- Contributions to Agricultural Sustainability

Introduction to Special Issue: The System of Rice Intensification (SRI) -- Contributions to Agricultural Sustainability | SRI Global News: February - April 2024 **sririce -- System of Rice Intensification | Scoop.it
The ideas and methods that constitute the System of Rice Intensification (SRI) were first synthesized in Madagascar by Henri de Laulanié in the early 1980s.  The principles and practices of SRI have now been validated in over 60 countries in Asia, Africa, the Americas. Yet, many individuals still know little or possibly nothing about this methodology for raising the productivity of the land, labor, capital, seeds, and water employed in rice cultivation.
 
This introductory article outlines research and reviews included in the Special Issue of Agronomy which is entitled “The System of Rice Intensification (SRI)—Contributions to Agricultural Sustainability”
SRI-Rice's insight:

The journal Agronomy's Special Issue on “The System of Rice Intensification (SRI)—Contributions to Agricultural Sustainability includes ten papers that present findings on ways in which SRI concepts are being utilized in diverse environments with modified practices, such as reducing labor requirements through mechanization and improving the production and profitability of crops other than rice. Various objectives are also being served, such as enhancing crops’ resilience to the stresses of climate change, reducing emissions of greenhouse gases, increasing the micronutrient content of the grain, and conserving crop biodiversity.

The Sustainable Rice NDC Alliance Spring 2024 Update

The Sustainable Rice NDC Alliance Spring 2024 Update | SRI Global News: February - April 2024 **sririce -- System of Rice Intensification | Scoop.it

The Sustainable Rice NDC Alliance continues to support its core aim of implementing high-yield low-emission rice agriculture by elevating rice-related NDC commitments. SRI-2030, the Alliance secretariat, is now focusing its support on Africa, although it will continue to support all nations pursuing sustainable rice production.

 

The Alliance continues to work directly with governments to design rice roadmaps with a current focus on West African nations. These are practical implementation plans combining agricultural policies such as National Rice Development Strategies or Climate Smart Agriculture frameworks with climate policy commitments as in countries’ NDCs. 

Events:
A Focus on Finance meeting was followed by a panel on Food and Agriculture in Dubai in November 2023. Other recent activities include co-hosting a February workshop in Nairobi on African Paddy Rice Greenhouse Gas Mitigation. and an April webinar with the Islamic Development Bank (IsDB) to examine how the System of Rice Intensification (SRI) can contribute to climate and development objectives  of the Bank’s goals.

TANZANIA: Unique Technique Enables Tanzanian Rice Growers to Produce More with Less Seeds, Water and Land

TANZANIA: Unique Technique Enables Tanzanian Rice Growers to Produce More with Less Seeds, Water and Land | SRI Global News: February - April 2024 **sririce -- System of Rice Intensification | Scoop.it

The System of Rice Intensification (SRI) is an environmentally sustainable farming method which has enabled growers from the Kapunga Village in Tanzania’s Mbarali district to boost their income and nutrition. Under the Capacity Building Related to Multilateral Environmental Agreements project in African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Countries-Phase III (ACP MEAs 3) funded by the EU, the FAO project aims to support local farmers by training them in adopting SRI.

 

The initiative encourages smallholders to participate in Farmer Field Schools (FFSs), offering them group plots of land and  SARO 5  seeds to practice SRI. ACP MEAs 3 helps farmers transition to more resilient and productive agrifood systems by offering training and capacity building in ecosystem-based practices that promote the sustainable resource management, protect the environment, and improve food security.

INDIA: System of Wheat Intensification (SWI): Effects on Lodging Resistance, Photosynthetic Efficiency, Soil Biomes, and Water Productivity

INDIA: System of Wheat Intensification (SWI): Effects on Lodging Resistance, Photosynthetic Efficiency, Soil Biomes, and Water Productivity | SRI Global News: February - April 2024 **sririce -- System of Rice Intensification | Scoop.it

Intense cultivation with narrow row spacing in wheat, a common practice in the Indo-Gangetic plains of South Asia, renders the crop more susceptible to lodging during physiological maturity. This susceptibility, compounded by the use of traditional crop cultivars, has led to a substantial decline in overall crop productivity. The results of a two-year field study on the system of wheat intensification (SWI) was conducted suggested that adoption of SWI at 20 cm × 20 cm resulted in significantly higher intercellular CO2 concentration (5.9–6.3%), transpiration rate (13.2–15.8%), stomatal conductance (55–59%), net photosynthetic rate (126–160%), and photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) interception (1.6–25.2%) over the existing conventional method (plant geometry 22.5 cm × continuous plant to plant spacing) of wheat cultivation.

 

The lodging resistance capacity of both the lower and upper 3rd nodes was significantly higher in the SWI compared to other cultivation methods. In addition, adoption of the SWI at 20 cm × 20 cm enhanced crop grain yield by 36.9–41.6%, and biological yield by 27.5–29.8%.. Further, increased root volumes, surface root density and higher NPK uptake were recorded under SWI at 20×20 cm in comparison to rest of the treatments. Therefore, adoption of SWI at 20 cm ×20 cm  and square planting  (with cultivars HD 2967) might be the best strategy for enhancing crop productivity and resource-use efficiency.

ODISHA, INDIA: Ganjam Farmers Bring Turnaround in Paddy Farming with SRI Method

ODISHA, INDIA: Ganjam Farmers Bring Turnaround in Paddy Farming with SRI Method | SRI Global News: February - April 2024 **sririce -- System of Rice Intensification | Scoop.it

Berhampur: SRI (System of Rice Intensification) method of paddy cultivation can help check climate change and benefit the farmers as it consumes less water in comparison to other methods of cultivation. ...In Ganjam district hundreds of acres are left uncultivated [due to climate change]. In this situation, the district project management unit under the Berhampur Forest department is laying stress on SRI cultivation. This has come as a relief for the distressed farmers fed up with crop loss and reduced output in the traditional method of cultivation. SRI method of cultivation is being implemented in the district with the support of the state government, the Green Climate Fund, and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). Farmers think that this new method is helping them raise their crops without hassle.

…This year over 900 farmers in Chikiti, Rangeilunda, Khallikote and Ganjam blocks have taken up SRI. Assisted by two voluntary outfits Lipika and Pallishree and supervised by 30 experts, an additional 870 farmers have taken up SRI on 200 acre of farmland. The cultivation was initially started by training the farmers in 39 villages

TANZANIA: Farmers Acceptance of SRI Project

TANZANIA: Farmers Acceptance of SRI Project | SRI Global News: February - April 2024 **sririce -- System of Rice Intensification | Scoop.it

Rice farmers have expressed their satisfaction with the project of System of Rice Intensification (SRI) in Tanzania that helps them withstand  the effects of climate change and reduce production costs; at the same time, productivity is double that of conventional agriculture. This was stated during the SRI Stakeholders Annual workshop held in Mbeya Region on January 24 through 27, 2024,  at the centre of Tanzania Agricultural Research Institute - TARI Uyole. While sharing his  testimony, Mr. Filbert Kadebe a farmer from Mkula scheme found in Kilombero District, Morogoro Region, said that with SRI he managed to reduce cost by using 2 to 3 kilograms of seeds per hectare from the 30 kilograms he used to plant. Kadebe continued  say that in SRI, with mat nursery technology it’s much easier for farmers to simplify the transplanting exercise as well as managing to transplant a single seedling.

The SRI project is implemented by the Tanzania Agricultural Research Institute (TARI) in collaboration with the Norwegian Institute of Bio economy research (NIBIO) and the Swamination Research Institute (MSSRF) based in India.

SRI 2.0 and Beyond: Sequencing the Protean Evolution of the System of Rice Intensification

SRI 2.0 and Beyond: Sequencing the Protean Evolution of the System of Rice Intensification | SRI Global News: February - April 2024 **sririce -- System of Rice Intensification | Scoop.it

As the System of Rice Intensification (SRI) has evolved in many ways and in several directions over the past two decades, this review follows the evolution of SRI over time. This overview explains how rainfed SRI, direct-seeded SRI, mechanized SRI, and other modifications have emerged since 2000, and how versions of SRI have been adapted to improve the production of other crops such as wheat, finger millet, maize, and sugar cane.

 

SRI thinking and practices are also being incorporated into diversified farming systems, broadening the impact of SRI beyond monoculture to achieve broader objectives like the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and the conservation of biodiversity. SRI observations and research have been contributing to the crop and soil sciences by focusing attention on plant roots and soil ecology and by showing how crop management can elicit more desirable phenotypes from a given genotype.

Exploring the Impact of Alternate Wetting and Drying and the System of Rice Intensification on Greenhouse Gas Emissions: A Review of Rice Cultivation Practices

Exploring the Impact of Alternate Wetting and Drying and the System of Rice Intensification on Greenhouse Gas Emissions: A Review of Rice Cultivation Practices | SRI Global News: February - April 2024 **sririce -- System of Rice Intensification | Scoop.it

An article in Agronomy shows that there need not be a trade-off between food security and climate change mitigation. A review of field studies found that SRI is associated with both reduced GHG emissions and higher yield compared with conventional flooded rice farming. The authors found that the mean reduction in emissions per kilogram of rice produced was 48% when SRI is compared with conventional practices. Yield benefits of SRI compounded the already significant reduction in emissions associated with alternate wetting and drying (AWD). The authors recommend that farmers be encouraged to adopt SRI practices given the dual benefits for food security and climate change mitigation. They also cited other benefits of SRI, and call for more research into the potentially even more significant benefits of soil carbon sequestration with SRI.

CHILE: Impulsan Sistema de Riego en Cultivo de Arroz para Reemplazar la Tradicional Inundación

CHILE: Impulsan Sistema de Riego en Cultivo de Arroz para Reemplazar la Tradicional Inundación | SRI Global News: February - April 2024 **sririce -- System of Rice Intensification | Scoop.it
 

La creciente sequía llevó a investigadores de INIA a incorporar una forma de regar campos arroceros sin afectar la calidad ni el rendimiento del cultivo.Este sistema llegó  para quedarse”, sostuvo el productor arrocero Luis Valenzuela del sector Santa Amelia, en San Carlos, al referirse a la implementación del SRI (System of Rice Intensification) o sistema de intensificación del cultivo del arroz, que está implementando el INIA como nueva forma para producir arroz en Chile.

 

Esta metodología utiliza riegos intermitentes, en reemplazo de la tradicional inundación que ha caracterizado a este cultivo, cambio que no es antojadizo, ya que responde a la creciente disminución de agua para riego, en gran parte del orbe.

SRI-Rice's insight:

“This system is here to stay,” said rice producer Luis Valenzuela from the Santa Amelia sector, in San Carlos, Chile, when referring to the implementation of the SRI (System of Rice Intensification), which is being implemented by the INIA.  SRI uses intermittent irrigation, replacing the traditional flooding-- a change that is not taken lightly, since it responds to the growing decrease in water for irrigation. Also the application of nitrogen has an efficiency of 70% in dry soil, while in flooded soil it only reaches 30%. An additional benefit noted was savings in products for weed control. Agronomist Karla Cordero added that, with the absence of flooding, “methane is no longer produced and the production of nitrous oxide is reduced."

USA: Black Farmers Are Taking the Lead in Regenerative, Organic Specialty Rice

USA: Black Farmers Are Taking the Lead in Regenerative, Organic Specialty Rice | SRI Global News: February - April 2024 **sririce -- System of Rice Intensification | Scoop.it

The Jubilee Justice Black Farmers' Rice Project, launched in 2020, supports smallholder Black farmers to grow organic, regenerative, specialty rice. The rice is processed and marketed through their own cooperative with support from Jubilee Justice.

After Konda Mason, founder of Jubilee Justice, learned of the System of Rice Intensification (SRI), she was emboldened by the idea that Black farmers could lead the development of growing regenerative, organic rice systems using the SRI method. In 2020, Mason joined forces with Erika Styger, an SRI expert at Cornell University, organic farmer Mark Fulford, and Iriel Edwards, 2020 Cornell graduate and first farm manager for Jubilee Justice.

KENYA: A Cost Benefit Analysis of the Adoption of System of Rice Intensification: Evidence in Oluch Irrigation Scheme, Kenya

KENYA: A Cost Benefit Analysis of the Adoption of System of Rice Intensification: Evidence in Oluch Irrigation Scheme, Kenya | SRI Global News: February - April 2024 **sririce -- System of Rice Intensification | Scoop.it

... Over a period of four years (2016–2019), we quantify the benefits accrued to the uptake of SRI among smallholder farmers in Oluch irrigation scheme western Kenya. Our comparisons are in reference to a baseline study conducted prior to the full-scale promotion of SRI in the study area. Our study findings reveal that the uptake of specific SRI practices increased by at least 30–80%, and acreage under rice farming increased by 50%. Although SRI required more production costs per acre (as much as 63% increase), SRI had at least 28.6% higher return per shilling invested. Our findings underscore previous results in the literature that SRI is associated with not only productivity but also economic benefits justifying the need for scaling especially among smallholder farmers.

INDONESIA: Utilizing the Genetic Potentials of Traditional Rice Varieties and Conserving Rice Biodiversity with System of Rice Intensification Management

INDONESIA: Utilizing the Genetic Potentials of Traditional Rice Varieties and Conserving Rice Biodiversity with System of Rice Intensification Management | SRI Global News: February - April 2024 **sririce -- System of Rice Intensification | Scoop.it

 New and ‘improved’ rice varieties have contributed greatly to increased production over the past 50 years, but the rate of rice yield increase based on genetic changes has declined in recent decades compared with the early years of the Green Revolution. In fact, many rice consumers continue to prefer to consume ‘traditional’ rice varieties because of their taste, aroma, texture, and other qualities. Furthermore, many farmers prefer to cultivate these varieties because of their better adaptation to local climatic and soil conditions and their evolved resistance to endemic stresses.

 

The practices that comprise the System of Rice Intensification (SRI) provide traditional rice varieties with micro-environments that are more favorable for the expression of their genetic and agronomic potentials. Interactions among rice plants, soil characteristics, water, energy, and other inputs improve the phenotypic and physiological performance of rice plants. This paper considers how the cultivation of traditional rice varieties with SRI methods can raise yields, reduce farmers’ costs of production, and generate higher incomes while contributing to the conservation of rice biodiversity.

Agricultural Advances at COP28: Grounds for Optimism Amidst the Overlooked Urgency for Emissions Reduction in Agriculture

Agricultural Advances at COP28: Grounds for Optimism Amidst the Overlooked Urgency for Emissions Reduction in Agriculture | SRI Global News: February - April 2024 **sririce -- System of Rice Intensification | Scoop.it

The food, agriculture and water side of COP28 was headlined by the COP28 UAE Declaration on Sustainable Agriculture Resilient Food Systems, and Climate Action (the Declaration) which was endorsed by 152 countries.

‍This declaration recognized the increasing vulnerability of agriculture and food systems to climate change, highlighting the escalating threat to their resilience. Regrettably, however, this declaration did not directly address the substantial emissions from agriculture, nor the low cost of mitigating thesehttps://www.sri-2030.org/the-alliance. Following the declaration, the Food, Agriculture, and Water Day at COP28 saw further announcements aimed at increasing climate change mitigation and adaptation in agriculture. (See article for list). Other organizations such as the Sustainable Rice Landscapes Initiative (SLRI) and Sustainable Rice Platform (SRP) have been working on addressing the environmental impacts of rice production for several years.

During 2023, SRI-2030 launched the Sustainable Rice NDC Alliance to bring together countries with rice-related commitments in their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC). In fact, more than 30 countries include rice in their NDCs and 13 countries specifically listed SRI methods as a mitigation and/or adaptation option. Encouraging more countries to commit to sustainable rice production in their NDCs would channel resources toward actionable strategies benefiting farmers, consumers, and the environment.

CHILE:  Rumbo a la COP28, el IICA Destaca Innovaciones de Sector Arrocero de Chile, Que Produce con Menos Agua y Emisiones, y el INIA Lleva Esa Experiencia a Filipinas

CHILE:  Rumbo a la COP28, el IICA Destaca Innovaciones de Sector Arrocero de Chile, Que Produce con Menos Agua y Emisiones, y el INIA Lleva Esa Experiencia a Filipinas | SRI Global News: February - April 2024 **sririce -- System of Rice Intensification | Scoop.it

El arroz climáticamente inteligente, desarrollado por el Instituto de Investigaciones Agropecuarias de Chile (INIA) junto al sistema SRI (System of Rice Intensification, por sus siglas en inglés) e impulsado por el Instituto Interamericano de Cooperación para la Agricultura (IICA) en las Américas, tiene como características salientes ser producido con hasta la mitad del agua que necesita el tradicional, un 80% menos de semillas y una reducción de emisiones de metano a través de la siembra directa e innovaciones como el riego subterráneo y por goteo.

SRI-Rice's insight:

 In the Americas, the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA) is promoting the salient characteristics of the climate-smart rice developed by Chile’s Agricultural Research Institute (INIA) drawing on the System of Rice Intensification (SRI) methodology.
