helping Aga Khan Foundation teach people better ways of growing rice

In partnership with

the project

Right now, rice grown locally doesn’t meet national demand, which means a lot of it has to be imported. The SPEEDRICE project trains farmers to grow more, better quality rice using something called the Zanatany Rice Permaculture System. ZRPS combines a series of techniques in rice growing, including gender friendly and climate-smart techniques. Together we hope to help farmers grow a lot more rice, by as much as 50% or more. Watch this space.
