Abstract:

Transplanting is most laborious consuming operation during paddy cultivation. The cost of puddling and transplanting share 50 percentage of the total producing cost. The man day required for transplanting ranging from 50-60 man-day/ha and labour are very costly. So newly developed manual paddy transplanter is fit to the requirement for small and marginal farmers due to wash root type seedling can be transplanted in the field. The performance of the transplanter was evaluated. Missing hill is comparatively low while using in the field and row-row distance is maintained by 25 cm. No of hills with no of seedlings per square meter is also maintained properly and it varies between 45 -55 seedlings per square meter. Field efficiency for designed transplanter is 52% for standing water of 0.6 cm and 44.4% for standing water of 0.3 cm.
