The System of Crop Intensification: Agroecological Innovations for Improving Agricultural Production, Food Security, and Resilience to Climate Change
By B Abraham, O O AdeOluwa, H Araya, et al.
In EDN 120, we summarized a document about SCI, the System of Crop Intensification, a methodology that applies SRI principles to crops other than rice. CTA (the Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation) and SRI-Rice (the SRI International Network and Resources Center at Cornell) have produced a new publication that reports on work currently in progress.
According to the foreword, “This booklet is not presenting a new ‘technology’—to be transferred and adopted—but a set of ideas and experiences that we hope will encourage many people to ‘think outside the boxes’ of their current practices and to capitalize upon certain biological processes and potentials that exist both within their present crops and within the soil systems in which these crops grow.”
