Père Henri de Laulanié, a French Jesuit priest, founded the Association Tefy Saina in 1990 with two self-taught agronomists, Sébastien Rafaralahy and Justin Léonard Rabenandrasana.
...
After their mentor's death in 1995, Rafaralahy and Rabenandrasana, now both in their sixties, continued the work of the farmer priest.
...
Rabenandrasana was born to a farming family in Ambohimasoa in 1939.After secondary school in the provincial center of Fianarantsoa, Rabenandrasana was awarded a bachelor's degree in philosophy from Antananarivo University.
In 1968, Rabenandrasana was appointed director of the Centre Artisanal de Promotion Rurale in Fianarantsoa.There he became acquainted with Laulanié, who occasionally taught agriculture and rural economy.In 1979, when his friend Rafaralahy moved to CENAM in Antananarivo, Rabenandrasana joined as deputy director.Rabenandrasana introduced Laulanié to CENAM, where he collaborated on various projects for rural development."In 1990, Père de Laulanié was getting older," says Rabenandrasana, "and he felt no one understood him or the scope of what he had found out about rice cultivation in Madagascar."
...
Rabenandrasana and Rafaralahy left CENAM to found Association Tefy Saina with Laulanié.
...
Later, Rabenandrasana became secretary-general of Tefy Saina and Rafaralahy its president.
...
Word of mouth about the SRI results was very positive, but Rafaralahy and Rabenandrasana lacked the scientific studies necessary for legitimacy.
...
"When I told Rafaralahy and Rabenandrasana we needed to raise yields around the Ranomafana National Park without damaging the forest," recounts Uphoff, "they said in French that even I could understand: pas de problème.
...
Today, Rafaralahy and Rabenandrasana spend most of their time visiting farms or teaching courses at the experimental paddies they use for demonstration outside Antananarivo, and making field visits all over the country.
...
Until now, SRI has not had as much direct impact on rice production in Madagascar as Rafaralahy and Rabenandrasana had hoped.
...
SRI has become a worldwide movement, yet the technique would have died with Père de Laulanié in Madagascar without the efforts of Rafaralahy and Rabenandrasana.

In June 1999, the secretary of Tefy Saina, Justin Rabenandrasana, made a presentation on SRI to an NGO conference on rice in the Philippines. The editors of LEISA magazine invited Justin to prepare an article on SRI for its worldwide readership, especially among NGOs (Rabenandrasana, 1999). (LEISA stands for 'low external-input sustainable agriculture.') In April 1999, Norman Uphoff, director of CIIFAD, presented a paper on SRI at a conference on agroecological alternatives held at the Rockefeller Foundation's center in Bellagio, Italy, further publicizing the new methods (Uphoff, 1999), having made a presentation on SRI to the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) at Los Baños the previous month.
...
NGOs that support low-input sustainable agriculture such as LEISA and ECHO have assisted this process by publishing articles on SRI, e.g., Rabenandrasana (1999), Berkelaar (2002).
