    Abstract

    The System of Rice Intensification (SRI) has been claimed to be more productive and sustainable than conventional methods in rice production. However, in some countries like Indonesia, its adoption rate remains low. This paper explores the factors that may affect SRI adoption in Indonesia, choosing Tasikmalaya district in West Java as a case study. By using a farm-level data, this study estimates the Cobb–Douglas production function and carries out a stochastic frontier analysis to assess whether SRI is technically efficient. It is found that technical efficiency (TE) of SRI and non-SRI is 82% and 64%, respectively, and the summation of factor production coefficient in rice production function is 1.1 indicating a Constant Return to Scale (CRS) technology. Furthermore, using a Probit model, it is found that the most important determinants of SRI adoption are irrigation infrastructure availability and participation in SRI training. Policy implications are discussed.
