Between 2004 and 2010, the Groupe de Recherche et d’Echanges Technologiques (GRET) supported the introduction and dissemination of SRI in Myanmar’s Northern Rakhine State, as part of a series of projects aiming at ensuring food security. Based on this initial experience GRET started to introduce the System of Rice Intensification in the Ayeyarwaddy Delta in the aftermath of Cyclone Nargis. Working in a new setting and context, the overall results were different – but no less interesting.
