Many studies show this method has been successful in increasing productivity of rice in various countries such as Vietnam, Indonesia, and India. In Malaysia, SRI began practice in 2009. However, there are various methods of yield productivity measurement of SRI rice has been used in the area.Therefore, this exploratory case study will identify and discuss methods of SRI paddy yield productivity measurement that has been used in Agro Belantik Corporation in Sik, Kedah.In addition, methods Muda Agricultural Development Authority (MADA) will also be discussed.The methodology used is an interview with SRI practitioners and observation.The scope of this study is rice farmers use SRI methods in Sik, Kedah.
