Double Yield from SRI Paddy Cultivation Technique

Here is my First Experience with the SRI (System of Rice Intensification) technique in Paddy Cultivation. From Documenting most of its growth through out last 3 months is amazingly feel good for me. 
In August we used single grain to transplant in a distance of 12 inches (though recommended 10 inches apart). In the Traditional cultivation the Distance is just 3-4 inches between the seedlings of Paddy while rowing. -see Picture below(left). The Results were astonishing , as for each single grain Produced an average of  900+ grains and that too without the use of any Chemical spray, fertilizer and insecticide. (Only Cow Dung Manure applied Prior to Rowing the Paddy ).  YES THAT'S IT !!
Again the Best Part is This year is without Rains and Water scarcity is all the way. Still the After Effects of SRI Technique Works brilliant .. Check out the Image Below: 
NOTE: The Real Assessment- Result will be done after Harvesting finally in next 20 -25 days.
