In her presentation during the session “Good practices in agricultural technology transfer through participatory and community-based approaches”, Ms. Chantheang Tong, Senior Program Officer, Cambodian Centre for Study and Development of Agriculture (CEDAC), shared the CEDAC experience in promoting the system of rice intensification (SRI) in Cambodia. Approximately 70 per cent of the country’s population depends mainly on agriculture for a livelihood and 60 per cent are rice farmers. A major constraint to improving rice productivity is that 80 per cent of rice farms are rain-fed. Moreover, the average rice farming household has 1.2 ha of land, although 48 per cent of farm households own less than 1 ha. The average rice yield of 3.3 tons per hectare is less than the potential.
