The acidic condition of soil intervened crop growth, especially for rice crop. This research aimed to examine whether application of SRI method on saline soil can improve the productivity of rice. This research applied SRI method in the hinterland of mangrove forest areas around Segara Anakan Lagoon of Indonesia through modified irrigation to reduce saline water intrusion. SRI along with deep furrows in this first implementation had reduced the use of synthetic fertilizers by 40%, reduced variable costs by 8.35%, increased the B/C ratio by 95% and crop productivity by 76% compared to the control methods and increased the B/C ratio by 161% and crop productivity by 133% compared to conventional methods. The farmer’s motivation to apply SRI along with deep furrows for both N-Ach and N-Aff majority was distributed from moderate to high.
