Sri Lovely Organic Farm is situated right in the middle of Lintang Valley in the state of Kedah. It has been promoting sustainable rice cultivation obtained through the System of Rice Intensification (SRI) since the year 2008. Its efforts are well recognised in the area.
The SRI system is based on a set of interrelated practices that are particularly beneficial for farmers, consumers and the environment. The system of Rice Intensification is an agroecological methodology for increasing the productivity of rice by reducing the use of inputs such as water, organic fertilizer and pesticides. This system has been very beneficial. Some of its benefits are its principle of “produce more with less”, the improvement of soil health, the capacity to withstand pest and disease and the adaptation to climate changes. The result is an exceptional and flavourful brown rice with high nutrient content.
