Development of bio-mulching materials for weed control, soil moisture conservation and insect repellency in system of rice intensification

Weed growth is one of the main constrains of System of Rice Intensification (SRI) due to wide planting spacing (25 × 25 cm or more) and alternate wetting and drying (AWD), thereby reducing rice crop yields up to 70% if there is no weed control attempted.
