This is a technique different from the conventional practices of rice cultivation where rate of production increases but cost of cultivation decreases. Using this technique a farmer can Transplant a 10-12 days old single rice seed ling on field having thin film of water (not submerged condition).
Benefits of this system are as follows:
1. Low seed rate.
2. Minimum water use especially in rabi season. (Average 900 L per Kg of paddy production as compared to 2000 L in conventional level).
3. High productivity.
4. Efficient use of fertilizer applied.
Farmers are very much interested and adapting this technique. Usually they found avg. 30% increase in yield production.
