SRI Pilot for Rice and Sugar Cane

 

New Hope for Haitian Food Security – System of Rice intensification (SRI)

The iF Foundation in partnership with the Better U Foundation is bringing SRI to northern Haiti. The System of Rice Intensification, better known as SRI is a method of growing rice that increases yields and reduces inputs. By reducing the amount of seed, water, chemical fertilizers and labor needed, SRI produces greater returns to farmers’ available resources and can lower production costs. This increases farmers’ incomes and increases the profitability of rice farming. The SRI method can also be used for growing other crops like sugar cane.
