From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Henri de Laulanie (February 22, 1920 in Poitou, France – June 23, 1995 in Madagascar) was a French Jesuit father who was responsible for the rice cultivation method known as the System of Rice Intensification (SRI).

Father de Laulanie arrived on Madagascar in 1961. As rice was the staple food of the Malagasy people, he set about trying to help farmers increase their rice production (amongst other crops).

In 1981 de Laulanie founded an agricultural school at Antsirabe to help educate the young. SRI was first developed in 1983, however the system was not fully tested until some years later.

De Laulanie died in 1995 - his grave is located in the cemetery at Ambohipo.
