2103 - Reduced Methane Emissions Rice Production Project in Northern Nigerian Using System of Rice Intensification (SRI)

  1. 1. Implemented by Tetra Tech International Development Reduced Methane Emissions Rice Production Project in Northern Nigeria using Systems of Rice Intensification (SRI). Demonstration Progress
  2. 2. 10/25/21 Implemented by Tetra Tech International Development Background to SRI Project Nigeria is the largest producer and consumer of rice in Africa. The country produces about 5 million metric tonnes of rice against a demand of 6.8 million metric tonnes per annum. About 90% of the rice is grown on paddies by resource-constrained smallholder farmers. Rice paddies contribute about 15-20% of total global anthropological methane emissions, and overall rice farming accounts for around 2.5% of all global human- induced greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, making its climate footprint comparable to that of international aviation. System of Rice Intensification (SRI) is a climate smart practice that increases productivity of rice and reduces methane emissions (by between 22% to 64%). Through support from the UK’s Department for Business Environment and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) PACT Programme, in collaboration with the UK’s Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) has enabled Tetra Tech to implement an SRI pilot project in Northern Nigeria through its LINKS programme. The project in its first phase, has established 27 SRI Climate-smart villages in Kano and Jigawa States. LINKS is working with rice aggregators to establish an out-grower model with field coordinators linked to each aggregator offering extension, agricultural input and aggregation services to farmers. Field Coordinators and Lead Farmers who manage 27 demonstration plots have been trained in SRI practices and over a wet and dry farming season will step down the SRI practices to farmers in the SRI climate-smart villages. The pilot is carrying out a series of demonstrations on SRI in 27 demo plots over two agricultural seasons for 1,350 small-holder farmers. It is also working with a research partner to monitor the application and impact of SRI in relation to soil quality, green-house-gas (GHG) emissions, farmer uptake, yields and incomes Expected impact of phase 1 of the pilot is: 1000 farmers with increased incomes, 36 jobs, and reduced GHG emissions
  3. 3. 10/25/21 Implemented by Tetra Tech International Development 13 July 2021_Nursery was established on a raised bed. In the dry season, it will be a sunken bed. Primed seeds sown in shallow grooves at 10cm intervals. Lightly covered with soil and mulched with dry material. Germination after 4 days was greater than 90% Seedlings were ready for transplanting at 11 days after sowing. SRI Nursery
  4. 4. 10/25/21 Implemented by Tetra Tech International Development 24/07/2021 _Transplanting at Kadumen Tudu. At 11 days after sowing, the seedlings were ready for transplanting. Land was prepared, basins constructed and levelled, Organic Fertilizer applied and pre-irrigation done a day earlier. 1 seedling was transplanted at 30cm inter row and intra row (between rows and between plants). A planting rake was used to get correct spacing. 24 July 2021 _Transplanting at Kadumen Tudu, Nigeria At 11 days after sowing, the seedlings were ready for transplanting. Land was prepared, basins constructed and levelled, Organic Fertilizer applied and pre- irrigation done a day earlier. 1 seedling was transplanted at 30cm inter-row and intra-row (between rows and between plants). A planting rake was used to ensure correct spacing. Transplanting
  5. 5. 10/25/21 Implemented by Tetra Tech International Development 12 August 2021_1st weeding at 19 days after transplanting. Motorized weeder was used to weed the plot Weeding
  6. 6. 10/25/21 Implemented by Tetra Tech International Development 21/08/2021_ USG Application 4 weeks after transplanting Top dressing was done using Urea Super Granules (USG). The granules were applied at 1 USG to 4 rice plants. Fertiliser Application
  7. 7. 10/25/21 Implemented by Tetra Tech International Development 27 August 2021_ Field growth at 5 weeks after transplanting Field Progress
  8. 8. 10/25/21 Implemented by Tetra Tech International Development 5 September 2021_An SRI field 6 weeks after transplanting Field Progress
  9. 9. 10/25/21 Implemented by Tetra Tech International Development 21 September 2021_Field at 9 weeks after transplanting with profuse tillering. Average of 91 per stand Field Progress
  10. 10. 10/25/21 Implemented by Tetra Tech International Development 6 October 2021_Field at 11 weeks after transplanting Field Progress
