  1. 1. Programme Report SRI Partners Meet - Sir Dorabji Tata Trust (SDTT) 4th – 5th June 2010, Hotel Gajapati, Puri________________________________________________________Programme Inauguration & ObjectivesA two day meet of the SDTT SRI Partners was organized from 4th to 5th June2010 in Hotel Gajapati, Puri. A total number of 54 participants attended theprogramme from 10 partner organizations from 10 states of the country.The prime objective of organizing this meet was to evolve a distinct roadmap for Sir Dorabji Tata Trust, the SRI Secretariat and all SRI partnersengaged in implementation of the System for Rice Intensification (SRI) forthe year 2010 – 11, as well as sharing of best practices on the SRImethodology and address specific challenges in implementation, wide-spreadadoption and replication of the methodology across various geo-climaticzones of the country. Apart from representatives of the partnerorganizations, senior officials from SDTT and Allied Trusts, Mumbai,distinguished scientists from the agro community, noted academicians andprominent state government officials were invited to participate in thedeliberations in Puri spanning across both the days.The proceedings commenced with the SRI Secretariat welcoming allparticipants to this two day meet. Dr Sanjiv Phansalkar, Programme Leader,SDTT, Mumbai, was designated as the Chairperson for the inaugural session.Programme Contents: Day 1Session 1At the onset, Mr Biswanath Sinha, Senior Programme Officer, SDTT, rendereda PowerPoint presentation on Overall Learning and Future Course ofAction in the Second Phase of the SRI Programme. Mr Sinha highlightedthe year wise progress, geographical outreach and the need for SRI up-scaling potential. For up-scaling SRI, Mr. Sinha mentioned the need to adoptan eight-pronged strategy:  Selection of appropriate Partner Organizations  Selection of villages and farmers  Capacity Building of master trainers & village level resource persons  Information Dissemination  Research methodology applied to other crops  Knowledge Networking  Program Monitoring  Policy Advocacy
  2. 2. Mr Sinha reflected a comparison with government schemes like the NationalFood Security Mission (NFSM) and the good work done in terms of coverageof the SRI methodology. He also laid emphasis on reaching out to small andmarginal farmers with specific reference to rain-fed areas. In addition tothese, Mr Sinha while mentioning the major achievements also took theexample of the case study of a SRI Farmer and some issues of introspection:  Average coverage has increased to 0.33 acres/ farmer in 2009 from 0.23 acres/ farmer in 2008  SRI farmers in Village: 13  How much to expand horizontally?  MIS is non-negotiable: MIS has had an tremendous addition in the SRI programme  State Symposiums: where do they lead to?  Cross – learning from SRIPresentation 2:Mr Tushar K Dash, SRI Secretariat, thereafter rendered the secondpresentation of the session on Drought Study. The major highlights of thepresentation were:  Respondent details of the study (across various States)  Rainfall pattern in the coverage areas  Stages of crop affected  Incidence of disease pest (SRI comparison with CMP)  Comparative study of plant height  Comparative study of panicle length  Comparative study of filled grains in a panicle  Comparative study of chaffed grains  Comparative study of grain yield  Comparative study of straw yieldComments:Mr Debasis Sen, Dy Director, Peoples Science Institute, Dehradun, suggestedincreasing the sample size of the study in this regard.Presentation 3:Mr Babaji Giri, Director (Agriculture), Government of Orissa, Bhubaneswar,rendered a presentation on Government Initiative for SRI in Orissa.Some of the major highlights of the presentation were:  SRI was initiated by the Government of Orissa in the year 2007-08.  SRI under Government intervention was taken up for 27 Districts across the state.  Highest yield was recorded in Khurda District.
  3. 3.  Demonstrations were made under various programmes like RKVY/ NFSM/ ATMA  Details of SRI demonstrations under the various schemes  Role of NGOs in promoting SRI  During 2010-11, the Govt plans to extend to the Gram Panchayats  Opting for intervention areas in SRI for effective implementation.Session Summary:Dr Sanjeev Phansalkar, Programme Leader, SDTT, summarized theproceedings of the inaugural session. Dr Phansalkar outlined the mainobjective of the SRI initiative which must essentially aim to improvehousehold level food security and the need to work with small/ marginalfarmers. Dr Phansalkar mentioned that the SDTT initiative on SRI withpresence already in 105 districts must reach out to other districts andexpanding/intensifying it must be the prime concern as of now. Threequestions of relevance were put forth by Dr Phansalkar: 1) What are the barriers that prevent intensifying SRI? 2) How to leverage from other intervention areas? 3) How to contribute to the well-being from the SRI link to other areas of relevance?Compilation of Suggestions from Participants:  Exploration of available inputs  In the case of Jharkhand in particular, there is limitation in the topography and hence intensifying SRI is a challenge  Adopting a set of principles of SRI to a particular region is the method that needs to be generally applied.  In rainfed areas, weeding is a major challenge  There is need for a central nursery due to fact that early age of the plant plays a crucial role in SRI practice.  Every farmer may not have assured irrigation facility and hence introduction of marker etc is important.  SRI needs timely bound operations (such as weeding/ applying manures). This aspect becomes a major challenge in hilly areas such as Uttarakhand  There is an urgent need to generate demand for weeders.Partners PresentationPresentation 1The first of the partners’ presentation was the one on Graduating to be aNodal Agency by Mr Avatar Singh Negi, of the Mouth Valley Development
  4. 4. Agency (MVDA), Uttarakhand. In his presentation, Mr Negi highlighted thefollowing in terms of the SRI initiatives of his organization:  SRI is seen by MVDA as a Mission and not just as a project/ programme.  Production of paddy through the SRI methodology has increased on an average of one and a half to almost two folds.  Helped in promotion of organic farming  Intensified the interest of people in agriculture.The major learning of MVDA has been:  Importance of the need for a careful selection of the SRI land for cultivation of paddy.  Requirement of trained Human resources.  Implementation according to the geographic location  Need of more dissemination and advocacy on SRI.At the end, Mr Negi spelt out the major challenges being encountered byMVDA in implementation which includes the prevalent traditional agriculturalpattern, initial distrust of farmers, lack of support from male members,availability of proper marker/ weeders, lack of proper irrigation and waterfacilities as well as absence of proper government support on SRI.Presentation 2The second presentation amongst those rendered by the partners was by MrParendra Saklani from the Garhwal Vikas Kendra, Uttarakhand. However, thepresentation was kept brief and major achievements and intervention of GVKin this aspect was broadly discussed.Presentation 3The third presentation was rendered by Ms Ronali Pradhan of the Centre forWorld Solidarity (CWS), Bhubaneswar on GO-NGO collaboration for up-scaling SRI in Orissa – the CWS Experience. The major highlights of thepresentation were:  CWS has undertaken collaborative research with Orissa University of Agricultural Technology (OUAT) in SRI  Promotion of Media linkages and interface on SRI methodology (includes electronic & print material).  Support to SRI partners at the District level in the State.  CWS has recently initiated a campaign on SRI and Traditional Rice Varieties at the “Adivasi Mela,” a yearly state-level exhibition and tribal fair in Orissa that was attended by more than 100,000 people. This
  5. 5. campaign included a display of over 300 traditional paddy varieties that have performed better under SRI practices.  Organizing symposiums at the State level.Presentation 4The last partner’s presentation in the forenoon session of the first day wasrendered by Mr Saikat Pal, Head (Livelihoods), PRASARI, West Bengal on“Banglar SRI”. Some of the major highlights of the presentation were:  Overview of the vision on Banglar SRI (i.e. SRI methodology in the state of West Bengal)  Can grassroots political leaders bring in change?  Publication of a book on SRI  Reluctance of the West Bengal government to accept SRI as a new and innovative methodology.  Importance of sensitizing the Government  State SRI symposium and learning  Cross learning amongst all can enrich all actors concerned.Compilation of Suggestions from Participants:  How to avoid overlap of activities?  How to ensure quality in large Government programmes and especially what role CWS plays in this regard?  What is the exact /actual contribution of the Government and that of the NGOs?  Establish systems that would ensure quality.Day 1: Session 2The second session of the first day was segregated into two parallel sessionswith each session having four partners presentation each. The Moderator ofthe first Parallel session was Dr Sanjiv Phansalkar and the rapporteuer MsShravani Roy, Research Associate, XIM, Bhubaneswar. The second parallelsession comprised of Ms Poornima Dore being the Moderator and Mr SanjayRoy as the rapporteuer.Parallel Session 1Presentation 1The first presentation in this session was rendered by Mr Debashish Sen,Deputy Director, Peoples Science Institute, Dehradun, Uttarakhand. Themajor highlights of the PSI presentation are outlined below:
  6. 6.  Capacity building undertaken for Master Trainers and Village Level Resource Persons (VLRPs).  Preparation of communication and IEC materials.  Field support activities  Research activities (especially on the impact on soil nutrient status)  SWI (System for Wheat Intensification) research trials on crop performance  Cost Benefit Analysis for SCI versus conventional methods of cultivation.  Exposure Visits and Experience Sharing Workshops  Policy Advocacy.  Linkages with Agriculture Department  Convergences with programmes like ATMA, Ajeevika, Uttarakhand Decentralized Watershed Development Programme etc.  Linkages with various research institutions  State Level Workshops Media Advocacy  Programme Monitoring (field visits/ review/ feedback to prominent Govt officials)  Farmers should be provided flexibility of adoption.Presentation 2The second presentation was rendered by Mr Rajib Kumar Roul, AKRSP (I),Bihar. The major extracts of the presentation are:  Overview of the activities of AKRSP (I) for the two outreach states – Bihar and Gujarat  Some of the major learning has been:  Due to clayey soil, use of markers is difficult in the context of Bihar.  Experimented SRI with some hybrid varieties apart from the high yielding varieties  While selecting the varieties of paddy, the farmers choice/option was exercised  In many cases, the nursery beds are at a far off location and hence difficulty of timely sowing of younger plants.  Problems was faced during transplantations since this was a new activity  Due to erratic rainfall, some farmers were not able to undertake transplantation within 12 days.  Increase in the paddy yield ranging from 25 to 50% was observed  Making valuable the CONO weeder is the plan for the current year.  There would be more focus on the technique and methodology rather than the seed variety  AKRSP has piloted the System for Wheat Intensification (SWI) with 76 farmers.
  7. 7. Presentation 3Aswini Bhattacharjee, Executive (Projects), PRADAN, Assam rendered apresentation on the initiatives of his organization on SRI for the state. Themajor highlights were:  Overview of the Demography, Development Issues and Agricultural scenario of the State.  PRADAN’s SRI initiative  Plan for the current year  Progress of activities so far  Challenges in SRI implementation:  Due to severe drought during the past year, a partner NGO of PRADAN had opted out from the SRI initiative  Heavy rains during April-May this year caused widespread damage to the summer crop  Dry spells after the month of September during the previous year did de-motivate farmers to pursue the activity, however, the fact that the SRI paddy could withstand drought for 30 days was an encouraging aspect that the farmers found interest in.  Collaboration with the Government Departments of Agriculture and NABARD, extensive training and exposure as well as aggressive campaigning amongst farmers on SRI are some of the strategies being adopted by PRADAN.Presentation 4SPWD, JharkhandPresentation 5Thereafter, a presentation of the Indian Grameen Service (IGS) – a BASIXgroup company, on SRI in Bihar was presented, major highlights of which aresummarized as under:  Overview of the objectives and models of intervention  Introduction of fee-based model for up-scaling SRI  Leveraging funds from various schemes like WDC, NAIP, BSFL  The major learnings has been:  Need for a strong cadre of VLRPs and transplanters  Farmers reluctant to invest on weeders  Availability of weeders is an issue.  Initial resistance for transplanting younger seedlings  Non-availability of sufficient organic manures  Poor drainage system in case of heavy rains  Lack of proper extension services  Better promotion and communication materials to be developed.
  8. 8. Parallel Session 2Presentation:A final partner’s presentation was rendered at the end of the first day. Thiswas provided by Mr Anil Verma, Team Leader, PRADAN, Bihar, on System of“Root” Intensification (SRI) Experience of PRADAN, Bihar.
