    Project description

    Developed in 1980 at Madagascar by a French Jesuit priest Fr. Henry de’ Laulanie, who rediscovered (1983) this novel practice by putting together several practices at his young farmers’ school.
     Starting with a single country in early 1990s, in a quick succession of less than two decades, SRI spread to many countries (presently more than 49 countries have introduced and adopted SRI).
     In 2003 Tamilnadu and Andhra Pradesh are the two pioneer states in India, which implemented SRI promotion program among the farmers.
     In Northeast India Tripura and Assam are leading states.
