PILOT PROJECT ON ORGANIC RICE AT KG. LINTANG, SIK
The SRI (System Of Rice Intensification) method of planting organic rice was first tried at Kg. Lintang Belantik, Sik on January 2011 to find out the potential yield in rice production using this method.
During this period, all the technical aspects of SRI were carried out by a group of farmers that have undergone courses regarding SRI in Indonesia from January 21 to 27, 2011. These include the production of organic fertilizer, pesticide, management of trees, soil, water and post-harvesting activities.
