Rice is the major source of food for nearly half of the world's population. As the production systems in rice are undergoing major adjustments in response to escalating scarcity of land, labour, capital and water, major change are needed in method of establishment and production of rice crop. System of Rice Intensification (SRI), an innovation in rice cultivation, is found to increase the factor productivity and reduce the cost of cultivation in ways that benefit the farmers especially of resource poor. Studies in many countries including India have demonstrated that there is enough scope to reduce the cost of cultivation, increase the yields and income per unit area by adopting SRI method of rice cultivation.
