A LETTER TO PILAR FATHERS OF BIRONDEM, VALPOI FROM HYDERABAD

RECEIVED BY EMAIL FROM HYDERABAD FROM CHANDRESEKAR NEMANI
Dear Fr. Inacio Almeida and Fr. Domnic Alvares,
I came across an article Pilar Fathers grow drought tolerant rice at Valpoi. Has you informed the Pilar Fathers about improvements in crop management (like System of Rice Intensification) that you could make to enhance drought-tolerance?
The Sabhagi Dhan innovation is reinforcing the belief among farmers that to solve agronomic problems you need to get a new / better variety. It is good to have new / better varieties, but this contributes to a feeling of dependence, whereas learning and using innovations like SRI enhance self-reliance.
For more details, please visit www.sri-india.net / www.wassan.org/org
With warm regards,
Chandrasekhar, Nemani
Program Officer (Information)
