The paper has quantified the benefits of SRI over non-SRI practices of rice cultivation in Tamil Nadu. TheSRI practices have been found to save inputs substantially and to increase returns. Higher return has beenattributed to increase in production as well as substantial reduction in cost of cultivation. The mostimpressive are the savings in water (22-39 per cent ) and seed (92 per cent). The organic supplementationdue to green manuring and weed incorporation, enhanced soil microbial activities and aeration, use ofsolar energy and time saving due to early transplantation, are some of the uncommon advantages of SRI.The women employment in specialized operations such as transplanting, harvesting and weedings canlead to gender equity. The estimates of technical efficiency using DEAP has clearly shown that SRI is moretechnical and economic efficient. Upscaling of SRI strategy will help achieve national as well as householdfood-security.
