The study has assessed the economic sustainability of SRI (system of rice intensification) and traditional methods of paddy cultivation in Gumla district of Jharkhand. Sustained yield levels will ensure stable production and in turn food security, while economic sustainability would encourage the farmers to adopt the technology over time and space. The present study has been reported that the yield levels of SRI farmers were higher than those of traditional farmers as evidenced from the positive regression coefficient (1.17) and the positive symmetry index (1040). Out of 30 farmers 14 farmers showed Di value significantly higher than Ds value and in the remaining cases they were lower than D, thus sustainability index for the yield of SRI method in Gumla district worked out to be 46.7 percent. It indicates that the SRI can thrive in the conditions of the study area and farmers can avail greater output and employment.
