Presidential Award for Best Farmer for Food Security 2010
We were pleasantly surprised to find out that we have been chosen as the best for Food Security for Presidential Award 2010. In Indonesia, this award is especially important to us as our President stresses on the importance of food security and self-sufficiency in Indonesia. As rice is our staple food, increasing rice production is one of our nation’s priorities. By using System of Rice Intensification (SRI), Sunria has achieved up to 78% production increase. In a nation where 4 tons paddy/hectare is the national average, we can achieve 7-7.5 ton!
We hope that with this award, more rice farmers in Indonesia and around the world will be motivated to use SRI for better productivity and more sustainability.
