Photo: Liu Zhibin standing in harvested section of SRI field where he combined his innovation of triangular planting with permanent (zero-tillage) raised beds.This yield for this plot was certified by Provincial Department of Agriculture technicians as 13.6 t/ha, which Liu expected to be higher in future years as soil fertility is built up. Liu alternates rice with potatoes on this field, 2004. [Photo by Norman Uphoff]
