- Organic Fair Trade SRI Rice is Exported from Central Java to Belgium and Germany
[August 28, 2013] The Appoli Farmer Association in Boyolali, Central Java, achieved its IMO organic and fair trade certifications in January 2013 and began exporting to Belgium and Germany in August 2013 under BloomAgro's Sunria brand name. The members of the association are shown at right packing red and white rice varieties for shipping. Appoli's fields with IMO certification also have the the national organic certification for Indonesia so that it can also sell organic SRI rice in the domestic market.
The international certification process took three years and was facilitated by VECO (a Belgian NGO), Lembaga Studi Kemasyarakatan Bina Bakat (LSKBB, a local NGO) and BloomAgro, an Indonesian exporter who also exports organic SRI rice from the Simpatic Cooperative in Tasik Malaya, West Java.

- Farmer from Aceh Wins National Achievement Award for Rice
An article in The Jakarta Post chronicles the path that led Mauliddin, an SRI farmer from Aceh, to receive a prestigious national achievement award for rice farmers. According to an earlier article in Serambi Indonesia, Mauliddin, who comes from the village Sampoiniet in the Subdistrict Masen of Aceh Jaya, was scheduled to meet the president of Indonesia, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, at the presidential palace on August 17, 2011, in conjunction with the commemoration of Indonesia's independence day. Maulidin learned SRI methods from the NGO Caritas Republic Koruna (CCR), which came to Aceh Jaya in 2008 to help victims of conflict and tsunami.
- Two NGOs Help Farmers in Boyolali Regency Expand Adapt Rainfed SRI
Imam Suharto has shared a new manual prepared for farmers carrying out SRI methods with rainfed rice in the Boyolali Regency of Central Java. Farmers in the Appoli farmer organization in the Andong sub-district of Boyolali have been practicing SRI for about five years. The manual, which is in Bahasa Indonesia, was put together by LSK Bina Bakat Surakarta, a local NGO, in cooperation with VECO Indonesia, a Belgian NGO.
- Indonesian Government to Increase Reliance on SRI
According to articles in Ekonomi Bisnis and the ReportLinker website, the Indonesian Ministry of Agriculture will set a target for rice cultivation using SRI methods at 1.5 million hectares in 2015. Hari Priyono, the secretary general of the ministry, said that the System of Rice Intensification is expected to be a solution for farmers to continue efforts to boost rice production with growing scarcity in land for expansion, noting that it would be difficult to rely on expansion of rice fields alone to reach the production target of 70.6 million tons of un-husked rice in 2011. Due to the success of SRI in the past few years in increasing productivity in some areas, Priyono says that the ministry plans to increase the use of the system by phases from 100,000 hectares of rice fields this year, to 200,000 hectares in 2012 and to 1.5 million hectares in 2015.
- Secretary General of Ministry of Agriculture and Head of Karawang
Regency Harvest SRI in West Java
An article in the Pos Kota reported that on March 26 the Secretary General of the Ministry of Agriculture, Hari Priyono, and the head of Karawang Regency, H. Ade Swara harvested rice grown with SRI together with a farmer group in Pasir Kamuning Village, in Karawang Regency's Telagasari District (photo at right). The Karawang Regency is one of the areas with a mandate to adopt SRI through the Ministry of Agriculture's Integrated Citarum Water Resource Management Investment Programme (ICWRMIP). The program includes 68 farmer groups in 27 villages in 6 districts and covers 1,360 hectares.
The farmer group Resep Makaya I, which has been using SRI methods for the past five years, averaged 11.86 tons/hectare in the 2010/2011 planting season in contrast to the conventional yield of 6.69 ton per hectare. Priyono said that while many countries currently have a problem with food security as a result of climate change, in Indonesia farmers are increasing their productivity through the use of SRI. He added that the success of the farmers in Karawang and elsewhere have been important fo the Ministry of Agriculture, especially for food security planning for the future.

- Minister of Agriculture and Governor of South Sumatra Celebrate
Successful SRI Harvest in Embawang Village
The Minister of Agriculture, Dr. H. Suswono and the Governor of South Sumatra, H. Alex Noerdin, along with other officials, PT Medco staff and community members, attended the Organic SRI Harvesting Ceremony at Embawang, South Sumatra on March 12, 2011. The introduction of SRI in this area was supported by the oil and gas company, PT Medco, through their corporate social responsibility (CSR) program.
According to an article in Kompas, 42 farmers (out of a total of 100) in the village of Embawang grew 35 ha of organic SRI. The average yield of organic SRI was 7-8 ton/ha while conventional rice cultivation yield in this area is only 4-5 ton/ha. In addition, this organic rice sells for Rp 10,000-Rp 15,000/kg (US$ 1.14-US$ 1.17/kg) which much higher that the price of conventionally grown rice at Rp 6,000-Rp 7,000/kg (US $0.67-US $0.80/kg). During the coming season, SRI methods will be actively promoted in an additional six villages.
- The Nusantara Organic SRI Center Expands Activities in Indonesia,
Malaysia and the Solomon Islands
The Nusantara Organic SRI Center (NOSC), formerly known as Nagrak Organic SRI Center (NOSC), has signed a one year contract with PT Sampoerna to promote organic SRI in Kerawang, West Java, and Pandaan, East Java. During January 21-27, 2011, a group from the Kedah Regional Development Authority (KEDA) in Malaysia was trained at NOSC in organic SRI methods and in organic vegetable production. On January 25, an MOU was signed between NOSC and the Program of Federal Land Consolidation and Rehabilitation Authority of Malaysia (FELCRA) in Kuala Lumpur to work together further on developing SRI at FELCRA Program sites. (see Malaysia page for more information). With funding assistance from SRI-Rice, NOSC also sent a trainer, Miyatti Jannah, to the Solomon Islands during October 2010 to train farmers and government extension workers there. Follow up visits are underway during 2011.
