‘System of Rice Intensification’ (SRI)


Low-cost, high yield rice cultivation in Kamrup district, Assam ~~ The ‘System of Rice Intensification’ (SRI) is a method aimed at increasing rice yield in farming. It is advantageous to paddy farmers because the cost of cultivation is low and the yield is very high. It is also an eco-friendly technique of cultivation where organic compost is used, making the land in use sustainable.

FXBIS, with support from HDFC Parivartan (CSR wing) , had begun this initiative in 3 targeted villages of Kamrup, in 126 beeghas (approx.31.5 acres). 65 farmers had participated in this pilot phase of SRI cultivation. The initiative’s first yield has recorded a result growth of above 30% over the usual productivity.

Now that’s some food for thought!!

In order to ensure a child-friendly environment, FXBIS is committed to redress socio-economic vulnerabilities by working with communities and co-creating sustainable development solutions. As the country chapter of the Geneva-based NGO, François-Xavier Bagnoud International (FXBI), FXB’s activities in India date back to 1991. In 2007, FXB India Suraksha was established as an autonomous Indian entity registered under section 8 of the Companies Act, 2013. FXBIS’ scope of intervention have expanded over the years from its original focus on working with families affect by HIV/AIDS to a community-based, multi-sectoral programme approach along its four ‘Domains for Change' – Access to Quality Education, Poverty and Livelihood, Improved Health Status, and Child Rights and Protection. Arming ourselves with this integrated approach, we presently have a goal of seeing 5 million families lead a self-dependent life of dignity with FXBIS’ support by 2027. FXBIS implements its programmes/projects directly on the ground. Currently, our 10 state teams across India are working on issues related to the areas of children rights and protection, gender equality, improved health and nutrition, sanitation and water, care and support to HIV/AIDS infected and affected people, quality education, enhanced livelihoods options as well as prevention of human trafficking and child sexual abuse. As of date, we have catalysed change and self-reliance for over 5 lakh families through the community-based integrated interventions.
