System of Rice Intensification (SRI), which is being promoted by Prayatn in Rayagada district of Odisha under the HDFC Bank ‘Parivartan’ supported Holistic Rural Development Programme, is proving to be a boon for the farmers. Because of increase in production which is being observed by the farmers who have been trained by and supported by Prayatn over last 3 years, at least 250 farmers have abandoned traditional practice of paddy cultivation and have switched over to this innovative technique. In the ongoing season, they have developed a nursery in 15 tribal villages of the district and are using modern tools and techniques to get better productivity per acre.
