We Connect

Connecting people means connecting ideas. To initiate change, we build networks so ideas can be cross-pollinated between actors in the food system. Currently, SRI-Mas runs the SRI Farm Network between five states in Malaysia for SRI communities to share struggles and exchange ideas. We are also connected to the greater Asia SRI Network, connecting chapters from all across Asia.

SRI Lovely 
Kg. Lintang

This award-winning, integrated organic farm located in Kg Lintang, Sik, Kedah is run by a cooperative- Koperasi Agrobelantik Sik. Farm operations began in 2010, and in 2011 Captain Zakariah (SRI-Mas Regional Coordinator and SRI-Lovely Managing Director) adopted SRI on the farm in its totality. The cooperative is now the proud owner of the ASEAN-wide recognised Malaysian Organic Certificate (SOM).

With the encouragement of Tuan Haji Marzuki (Government Officer at KEDA), SRI rice was planted in a small area in Kaki Bukit, Baling, Kedah in 2014. The plants fared very well, but the area was later designated to be a flood retention pond and thus, had to be abandoned.  A new area will be chosen to be planted with SRI rice in the coming seasons.
