Ndop Rice

Helping the rice farmers in Ngoketunjia, Cameroon

Harvesting rice in Ndop; December 2015

We trained 3 farming groups in 2013; an additional 5 in 2014 and 5 more in 2015. With SRI the farmers are finding that the average number of tillers increased from an average of 18 to 45 ! Here are some of the observations from the plots of the 5 groups trained this year:

SRI Plot

  • The average tillers are as follows ( random sampling ) : lowest number of tillers 37 highest number tillers 53= 45 average

  • Pinnacles : lowest number 12 highest number 14= 13 average

  • Grain length 1.2mm

Traditional plot

  • The average tillers are as follows ( random sampling ) : lowest number of tillers 12 highest number tillers 24= 18 average

  • Pinnacles : lowest number 10 highest number tillers 12= 11 average

  • Grain length 1mm

The new groups are trained on harvesting techniques: use of local materials and manual threshing
