Key Learnings
1. Improved livelihoods
(productivity and
profitability, labour
productivity)
2. Resource use efficiency
(water productivity,
fertilizer use efficiency. Total
energy input)
3. Climate change mitigation
(GHG mitigation)
Coverage
 Covers 11 provinces and 33
rainfed districts
 > 170 farmers’
participatory action
research sites
 > 400 fields experiments
using SRI ideas
 > 11,000 farmers directly
involved
 > 15 institutions involved
SRI: Transplanting younger and fewer seedlings/hill or direct seeding with low seed rate; Maintaining
wider spacing; Avoiding continuous soil saturation; Applying compost as much as possible
SRI: Develop climate-smart practices, address food
security and achieve sustainable development goal
in a more complementary way
SRI has demonstrated that it is a high yielding, climate-
smart, low cost practices with higher factor productivity
(land, labors, water, chemicals, and seed).
SRI can lead the way to poverty reduction and can make
smallholder farming attractive, efficient, and smart
 With SRI, the economic productivity is higher in rainfed
areas compared to irrigated areas
Collective action is needed by farmers' organization to
capture the economies of scale and to commercialize the
rainfed agriculture and sustain the benefits
 National and international actors including private
sectors’ support would be needed to support this
development
