Content However we look at it, the System of Rice Intensification, or SRI, is a major success story. While researchers are still debating its relevance, more and more people are getting to know about it, and more and more farmers are harvesting the results.

From Madagascar to more than 50 countries, and from rice to other crops, the dissemination of SRI has been impressive. This is a fascinating case study of innovation from below, involving local authorities, “champions”, extension agents and millions of farmers.

Farming Matters is a 42 page full colour magazine about sustainable agriculture with experiences of family farmers around the world, news about agro-ecology and with more than 150.000 readers globally.
