It was a delightful moment for TLF to finally harvested our own organic rice. This rice field is cultivated using the SRI (System of Rice Intensification) method. Thanks to support from Astralife we could include this module in our curriculum as many of our students come from regions where the main crop is rice.  With the fundind we also purchased our first tractor, grass chopper for composting and bought rice seeds.

SRI increases rice yield of rice with less water, less labor and single-spaced seedlings. Our students learnt so much participated throughout the whole process and Advanced Program students have also choosen rice cultivation for their individual research projects.

The yield is beyond our expectation as we harvested 362 kg from 402 m2 rice field. This means the average yield is 9 tons/ha.

Thank you Astralife for supporting this project!
