Yield of SRI vs Conventional Practices in 2010

In the wet season of 2010, CEDAC[1] staff collected the data of SRI (System of Rice Intensification) from 540 villages across 6 provinces including Prey Veng, Mondulkiri, Stung Treng, Kampong Chhnang, Svay Rieng, and Kampong Speu. It is interesting to see the different yields of rice cultivation through the SRI practices and the conventional practices. SRI produced 3.24 t/ha for the wet season rice production, but the yield from the conventional practices was only 2 t/ha. So, it is able to estimate that SRI can produce rice yield 62% higher than the conventional practices.
