  2. 2. Our story SRI (System of Rice Intensification) is a methodology used to increase the production of rice. SRI was first introduced in 1998 at Khumaltar Research Farm. SRI has been shown to improve yields in rice production by 1.5 to 2.5 times across Nepal. This technology was first identified in Madagascar in 1983. SRI requires younger seedlings, singly spaced, and hand-weeded by tools like the rotary weeder-- unlike the traditional method where 4 to 5 seedlings (or more) are planted without any fixed spacing, and also requires a lot of water compared to SRI method. Scientists have been actively researching and promoting the use of SRI in Nepal for over a decade. The Nepal SRI Network was formed in 2015 to accelerate and facilitate further research, advocacy and promotion of this technology that can easily increase productivity without increasing costs to the farmer or causing negative impacts to the environment.
