Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 1998
This description of P. Sarijo's work was prepared when P. Sarijo was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1998.
Sarijo has developed profitable, ecologically sound farming techniques as alternatives to the Indonesian government's "miracle rice" programme. In spreading these techniques to many of Indonesia's farming communities, he is not only reducing the pollution levels that are so damaging to the land, but also helping stave off the eradication of a traditional rural culture.
