Summary of SRI in Rwanda

International Fund for Agricultural Development's (IFAD) brought two people from the Madagascar NGO Association Tefy Saina to Rwanda in 2006 to extend SRI methods in conjunction with the Support Project for the Strategic Plan for the Transformation of Agriculture (PAPSTA); fifty farmers were trained in SRI methods in the original training. By 2008, an additional 2000 farmers had reportedly been trained by IFAD projects in two areas. In Kibaza, rice yields increased under SRI from 4 t/ha to at least 6 t/ha, for a total production of 135 tonnes. In Rwabutazi, yields rose from 4 t/ha to at least 7 t/ha, for a total production of 401 tonnes in 2008. According to IFAD reports, the Rural Sector Support Project (RSSP) began replicating SRI in the marshlands of Rwanda in 2009.. A video produced in 2011 documented the additional spread of SRI from Rwanda into Burundi.
