1st NATIONAL CONFERENCE ON SYSTEM OF RICE INTENSIFICATION (SRI)- MALAYSIA

 

5-6 July, 2011
Palm Garden Hotel IOI Resort, Putrajaya.

BACKGROUND
Rice security of Malaysia has come under scrutiny following the 2008 food crises.  Rice for Malaysia is not only a matter of food security but also regarded as a matter of national security and roots of Malaysian culture and heritage.  The issues and concerns related to making rice supply available, accessible and affordable to Malaysians have been frequently cited as the main reasons for increasing local rice production in the move towards achieving self-sufficiency goals.  Hence, technology and methods of production have moved towards so-called “modern agriculture” and high-yielding rice varieties that can withstand climate change and promise high returns to farmers.
