Abstract: Data for this study has been obtained from field level household surveys in four different districts of the state of Bihar where the program is being implemented both by the state as well as NGO partners. A sample of 330 farmers, covering adopting SRI(185), 105 dis-adaptors (drop outs) and rest 40 farmers practicing conventional rice farming(non-adopters) have been selected purposively. Field survey method has been adopted which has strengthened the scope for systematic representation. Data that have been interpreted consists of primary data collected through the structured questionnaire, information thus collected was computerized for analysis to draw meaningful conclusion. This study examines socio-economic conditions of SRI farmers and their views on SRI and its effects on rice production among the SRI practicing farmers in Bihar. Analysis shows that preference for SRI technique in rice is higher among male farmers than those of female. Literate farmers have more preference for SRI. Increase in literacy among farmers can improve agriculture productivity in Bihar. The analysis finds significant increase in productivity of rice after adoption of SRI technique. However, limitations reported by the farmers include labour intensive nature of SRI, shortage of skilled labour and lack of machine diversifications have bearing on preference of SRI among farmers. Thus, the study suggests that training of farmers at panchayat or village level, effective Kisan call centre facility, proper demonstration of SRI at village or panchayat level and regular monitoring are essential to promote the use of SRI in Bihar.
