  4. A documentary film on the System of Rice Intensification (SRI), a water saving technology for growing paddy rice that results in increased yields and other benefits (less seeds, better grain quality, reduction of mosquito breeding). Introduced in Kenya in 2009 over 3,000 farmers have now adopted SRI. Rice yields have increased 30% and 25% irrigation water has been saved among adopter farmers. This film presents the problems of rice farmers, describes SRI practices, their benefits and how the technology is being promoted in Kenya.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FEfICNmfh7I
  5. SRI is part of the answer to the global food shortage. Using techniques taught in this video, farmers have been known to increase rice crop yields by an astounding 200-300%…but yet the techniques require no new technology or any heavy investment in machinery. These techniques are all about discarding traditional ways that rice crops have been grown and using new methods which optimise plant strength. This video is a must see for small crop farmers of any nationality…who can incorporate these techniques into their growing conditions! This video is bought to you by ADRA New Zealand (Adventist Development and Relief Agency). An organisation who cares.
