Rice is grown in all the countries of the world, except Antarctica.
It has large influence on nutrition and food security all over the world.
It is the staple food for over half of the world’s population.
About 4/5th of the world’s rice is produced by the small scale farmers and is
consumed locally.
Rice systems support a wide variety of plants and animals, which also help to
supplement rural diet and incomes.
Rice is therefore on the frontline in the fight against world hunger and poverty.
Rice is also a symbol of both cultural identity and global unity.

MAJOR CHALLENGES
Rice and Water
 80% of fresh water is used for agriculture.
 More than 50% of this is consumed by the rice
crop.
 Rice consumes about 4000-5000 ltr. of water to
produce 1 kg of grain.
 Irrigated Rice cannot be ignored as it contributes
significantly to food security.
 Little scope to save water from other irrigated dry
crops.
 Hence pressure would be on rice cultivation to cut
down the water requirement.
Water saving strategies and
options in rice cultivation
Genetic
 Designing water use efficient varieties and
hybrids.
Management
o Zero tillage
o Raised bed method
o Direct seeding
o System of Rice Intensification (SRI)
o Aerobic rice
o Alternate wetting and drying
System of Rice Intensification (SRI)
- a new management technique for
increasing the productivity of irrigated rice
What is SRI ?
It is a set of modified practices for growing
rice which was developed in Madagascar in
1983 by Father Henri Laulanie.
Features
Planting young seedlings 8 – 12 days old
Planting single seedling/hill Along with soil
Wider Spacing 25 cm x 25 cm
Organic manuring Compost , Gm , Straw
No standing water till PI stage Alternate wetting and drying
Aerated Soil Weeding by Cono-weeder
SRI increase rice yields significantly through effective
integration of soil, water, nutrient and plant management,
without dependence on high cost modern inputs.
SRI practices are helpful in improving the soil quality and
soil biodiversity and protect the environment
sustainability.
SRI increases the profitability of rice farmers, especially
those, who are resource-poor by saving inputs
SRI technology uses less seed, water, chemical fertilizers
and pesticides but yields more with large root volume,
profuse and strong tillers with big panicles, more and
well-filled spike lets with high grain weight
Why SRI
Claims of SRI method
 Very high yields (up to 15 – 17 t/ha).
 Water saving (up to 50%)
 Improved soil health.
 Improved input use efficiency.
 Lower seed requirement.
Irrigated environments- Irrigated Medium Lands
in wet season and dry seasons.
Rainfed environments- shallow lowlands where
water control (irrigation & Drainage) is possible
Irrigated boro rice areas in West Bengal, Bihar,
Orissa, Assam & other NEH states

The SRI and ICM gave significantly higher grain yield than
LRP.
The mean grain yield under SRI (5.92 t/ha in 2005 and 6.99
t/ha in 2006) was higher by 21 and 24 percent over LRP
(4.90 t/ha in 2005 and 5.64 t/ha in 2006).
SRI gave about 7.5 and 14.8 per cent increase in grain yield
over ICM in 2005 and 2006 respectively.
Higher yield in SRI was realized due to more effective tillers
hill-1, longer panicles with more fertile spikelets panicle-1.

Standardization of technology package for SRI- CRRI, Cuttack
Yield and water use efficiency were significantly affected by
different water regimes.
Highest yield and Water Use Efficiency were obtained when
irrigation was provided at saturation and the lowest was obtained
when irrigation was given at 10 days interval
Total and effective tillers per hill and panicle weight were more in
SRI.
Despite of more tillers per hill in SRI, the total tillers as well as
effective panicles on per unit area basis were not compensated
by the wider geometry as compared to traditional method.
Thus, on an average the grain was more under traditional method
as compared to SRI

Practices
Figures in parenthesis indicates WUE in kg/ha-mm
Apply NPK @ 60:30:30 kg/ha (wet season) & 80:40:40 kg/ha (dry
season). Soil test based fertilizer application especially for P & K is
preferred.
Apply 1/2 of total N, entire amount of P & ¾ of K as basal after final land
preparation & draining out the standing water. Top dress the remaining
N in 2 equal splits each at 3 weeks after transplanting and at PI. Also
apply remaining 1/4 of K at PI.
For better soil health apply N in the form of both organics (GM, FYM,
Azolla etc.) & inorganic (urea) in 50:50 proportion.
Apply ZnSO4 @ 25 kg/ha in Zinc deficient soils.
In highly fertile soils, application of FYM or compost alone @ 10t/ha is
sufficient as source of nutrients. Apply diverse organic manures.
Organic manures act as food for microorganisms.
Fertilizer Management
Carbon dioxide fluxes from rice field in SRI and flooded
condition in morning and afternoon (at CRRI).
The CO2 flux per kg of rice production is less in SRI compared to flooded rice

The CRRI transferred the results of SRI research to
extension agencies and farmers through training and on
farm field demonstrations.
The officials of the various state dept. of agriculture and
farmers visited experimental plots and gained the
experience of SRI cultivation.
Trained the farmers of Bandakutra, Junagarh in cultivation
techniques of SRI in collaboration with Syngenta
Foundation together with KARRTABYA (NGO). About 100
farmers from the surrounding villages attended the
workshop and got benefited.
Our scientists including myself participated in various
training programmes organized on SRI by State Department
of Agriculture, ATMA, PPL, NGO’s etc as resource persons

Conclusions
♦ Performance of SRI is location specific
♦ Varieties respond differentially to this method.
♦ It is a water and seed saving method.
♦ Can be a best option to promote hybrid rice as hybrids
perform better under SRI and it helps to save significantly
in seed cost.
♦ Has potential to improve soil health and environmental
protection.
♦ Further research is needed to understand the factors
contributing to higher yield, soil health parameters, and
various aspects of sustainability.
♦ This technology could be well adopted in the coastal
districts of Orissa during dry season. However, in western
parts of the state it can be practiced both in wet and dry
seasons.
Major Constraints Experienced at operational level
Initial resistance to go for planting young seedlings
Difficulties in weeding and non availability suitable weeders
Non availability of enough quantity of organic manures
Lack of proper control of water especially under canal irrigation
and under bore wells (due to electricity problems)
Poor drainage in heavy rainfall areas
Non availability of trained Agricultural labour for planting and
weeding
To realize the potential of SRI will require
sustained interdisciplinary team efforts, ranging
from strategic on-station research to participatory
on-farm studies. This will have to deal with three
broad, inter-related aspects of research:.
1. Interactions between genotypes and biophysical
environments (G_E);
2. Interactions between biophysical environments and
cultural practices; and
3. Adaptation of SRI and its components to the needs
and opportunities of diverse rice production systems,
including adjustments for socio-economic acceptability
and suitability
FUTURE RESEARCH STRATEGIES
Future Thrust Areas for Research on SRI
■ Varietal response to SRI and designing suitable plant type.
■ Identification of areas/zones most suited for SRI method.
■ Precise quantification of savings in water.
■ Effective weed management and refinement of machinery.
■ Detailed studies on soil health and microbial activity.
■ SRI vis-à-vis pest and disease incidence and their management.
■ Detailed economics of SRI and Cost : Benefit analysis.
■ Farmer participatory trials to fine tune the technology in terms of
its economic viability and sustainability
■ Development of machinery for weeding & Planting
■ Studies on mitigating the effects of climate change if any with SRI
adoption.
Evaluation of SRI with recommended package of practices
Standardization of technology package for SRI in different rice
growing regions and ecologies (varieties including hybrids,
spacing of hills, number of seedlings per hill, age of seedlings,
weeding practices, irrigation pattern, pest and disease
management etc.)
Fine-tuning the SRI technology in terms of economics and
sustainability through Farmer participatory on farm trials
Generation of scientific reasons of higher productivity realized
with SRI in terms of greater root growth, water saving potential,
degeneration of roots in flooded conditions, nutrient
transformation, microbial biomass etc.
Mechanization aspects of SRI- Development of Mechanical Weeder
Research in Progress
Do’s
Use quality seeds of relevant variety/hybrid for healthy seedlings
Favourable uplands and areas with assured irrigation should be used for SRI
Planning for SRI areas needs to be done at district level
Young seedlings with intact soil roots to be shallow transplanted
Use as much organic manures as possible
Use cono-weeder for controlling weeds & creating aeration
Care should be taken to control leaf folder & Nematodes
Avoid flooding & adopt AWD to keep the soil at saturation
Don’ts
Not to be promoted where the fields are not leveled
Not to be promoted in saline soils, lowlands & high rainfall areas

System of rice intensification status, issues and future research strategies

  • 1. System of Rice Intensification- Status, Issues and Future Research Strategies K.Srinivasa Rao Ex. Head, Div. of Crop Production Central Rice Research Institute Cuttack-753 006, Orissa, India ______________________________ E- mail: ksrao_52@hotmail.com
  • 2. Rice is grown in all the countries of the world, except Antarctica. It has large influence on nutrition and food security all over the world. It is the staple food for over half of the world’s population. About 4/5th of the world’s rice is produced by the small scale farmers and is consumed locally. Rice systems support a wide variety of plants and animals, which also help to supplement rural diet and incomes. Rice is therefore on the frontline in the fight against world hunger and poverty. Rice is also a symbol of both cultural identity and global unity. “Rice is Life”

  • 5. Low Land and Water Productivity Degrading Land Resource Base Depleting Aquifers Dwindling Land for Agriculture High Water Losses Shrinking Water Resources Increasing Population Pressure Food Security MAJOR CHALLENGES
  • 6. Rice and Water  80% of fresh water is used for agriculture.  More than 50% of this is consumed by the rice crop.  Rice consumes about 4000-5000 ltr. of water to produce 1 kg of grain.  Irrigated Rice cannot be ignored as it contributes significantly to food security.  Little scope to save water from other irrigated dry crops.  Hence pressure would be on rice cultivation to cut down the water requirement.
  • 7. Water saving strategies and options in rice cultivation Genetic  Designing water use efficient varieties and hybrids. Management o Zero tillage o Raised bed method o Direct seeding o System of Rice Intensification (SRI) o Aerobic rice o Alternate wetting and drying
  • 8. System of Rice Intensification (SRI) - a new management technique for increasing the productivity of irrigated rice
  • 9. What is SRI ? It is a set of modified practices for growing rice which was developed in Madagascar in 1983 by Father Henri Laulanie. Features Planting young seedlings 8 – 12 days old Planting single seedling/hill Along with soil Wider Spacing 25 cm x 25 cm Organic manuring Compost , Gm , Straw No standing water till PI stage Alternate wetting and drying Aerated Soil Weeding by Cono-weeder
  • 10. SRI increase rice yields significantly through effective integration of soil, water, nutrient and plant management, without dependence on high cost modern inputs. SRI practices are helpful in improving the soil quality and soil biodiversity and protect the environment sustainability. SRI increases the profitability of rice farmers, especially those, who are resource-poor by saving inputs SRI technology uses less seed, water, chemical fertilizers and pesticides but yields more with large root volume, profuse and strong tillers with big panicles, more and well-filled spike lets with high grain weight Why SRI
  • 11. Claims of SRI method  Very high yields (up to 15 – 17 t/ha).  Water saving (up to 50%)  Improved soil health.  Improved input use efficiency.  Lower seed requirement.
  • 12. Irrigated environments- Irrigated Medium Lands in wet season and dry seasons. Rainfed environments- shallow lowlands where water control (irrigation & Drainage) is possible Irrigated boro rice areas in West Bengal, Bihar, Orissa, Assam & other NEH states Favourable bunded uplands during wet season Production Environments

  • 21. The SRI and ICM gave significantly higher grain yield than LRP. The mean grain yield under SRI (5.92 t/ha in 2005 and 6.99 t/ha in 2006) was higher by 21 and 24 percent over LRP (4.90 t/ha in 2005 and 5.64 t/ha in 2006). SRI gave about 7.5 and 14.8 per cent increase in grain yield over ICM in 2005 and 2006 respectively. Higher yield in SRI was realized due to more effective tillers hill-1, longer panicles with more fertile spikelets panicle-1. RESULTS

  • 27. Yield and water use efficiency were significantly affected by different water regimes. Highest yield and Water Use Efficiency were obtained when irrigation was provided at saturation and the lowest was obtained when irrigation was given at 10 days interval Total and effective tillers per hill and panicle weight were more in SRI. Despite of more tillers per hill in SRI, the total tillers as well as effective panicles on per unit area basis were not compensated by the wider geometry as compared to traditional method. Thus, on an average the grain was more under traditional method as compared to SRI Studies on Water Management

  • 29. Apply NPK @ 60:30:30 kg/ha (wet season) & 80:40:40 kg/ha (dry season). Soil test based fertilizer application especially for P & K is preferred. Apply 1/2 of total N, entire amount of P & ¾ of K as basal after final land preparation & draining out the standing water. Top dress the remaining N in 2 equal splits each at 3 weeks after transplanting and at PI. Also apply remaining 1/4 of K at PI. For better soil health apply N in the form of both organics (GM, FYM, Azolla etc.) & inorganic (urea) in 50:50 proportion. Apply ZnSO4 @ 25 kg/ha in Zinc deficient soils. In highly fertile soils, application of FYM or compost alone @ 10t/ha is sufficient as source of nutrients. Apply diverse organic manures. Organic manures act as food for microorganisms.

  • 36. The CRRI transferred the results of SRI research to extension agencies and farmers through training and on farm field demonstrations. The officials of the various state dept. of agriculture and farmers visited experimental plots and gained the experience of SRI cultivation. Trained the farmers of Bandakutra, Junagarh in cultivation techniques of SRI in collaboration with Syngenta Foundation together with KARRTABYA (NGO). About 100 farmers from the surrounding villages attended the workshop and got benefited. Our scientists including myself participated in various training programmes organized on SRI by State Department of Agriculture, ATMA, PPL, NGO’s etc as resource persons Technology Transfer and Dissemination

  • 39. Conclusions ♦ Performance of SRI is location specific ♦ Varieties respond differentially to this method. ♦ It is a water and seed saving method. ♦ Can be a best option to promote hybrid rice as hybrids perform better under SRI and it helps to save significantly in seed cost. ♦ Has potential to improve soil health and environmental protection. ♦ Further research is needed to understand the factors contributing to higher yield, soil health parameters, and various aspects of sustainability. ♦ This technology could be well adopted in the coastal districts of Orissa during dry season. However, in western parts of the state it can be practiced both in wet and dry seasons.
  • 40. Major Constraints Experienced at operational level Initial resistance to go for planting young seedlings Difficulties in weeding and non availability suitable weeders Non availability of enough quantity of organic manures Lack of proper control of water especially under canal irrigation and under bore wells (due to electricity problems) Poor drainage in heavy rainfall areas Non availability of trained Agricultural labour for planting and weeding
  • 41. To realize the potential of SRI will require sustained interdisciplinary team efforts, ranging from strategic on-station research to participatory on-farm studies. This will have to deal with three broad, inter-related aspects of research:. 1. Interactions between genotypes and biophysical environments (G_E); 2. Interactions between biophysical environments and cultural practices; and 3. Adaptation of SRI and its components to the needs and opportunities of diverse rice production systems, including adjustments for socio-economic acceptability and suitability FUTURE RESEARCH STRATEGIES
  • 42. Future Thrust Areas for Research on SRI ■ Varietal response to SRI and designing suitable plant type. ■ Identification of areas/zones most suited for SRI method. ■ Precise quantification of savings in water. ■ Effective weed management and refinement of machinery. ■ Detailed studies on soil health and microbial activity. ■ SRI vis-à-vis pest and disease incidence and their management. ■ Detailed economics of SRI and Cost : Benefit analysis. ■ Farmer participatory trials to fine tune the technology in terms of its economic viability and sustainability ■ Development of machinery for weeding & Planting ■ Studies on mitigating the effects of climate change if any with SRI adoption.
