Rice

There are a number of factors that inhibit optimal production of rice in Indonesia, including  challenges in producing hybrid seeds, seed import policy restrictions, and  farmers limited awareness and knowledge of correct cultivation practices. 

PRISMA collaborates with partners in producing and promoting hybrid rice seeds through better production management and practices. The use of quality seeds (composite and hybrid), combined with good agricultural practices (crop protection, fertilising, and post-harvest processes) is anticipated to generate significant systemic change at the farmer level, enabling farmers to withstand the impact of environmental changes (land, water, and climate change), pests and disease, and reduce their dependency on seed subsidies.
