Abstract:

On farm trial were conducted during Kharif, 2014 and 2015, to assess the feasibility of Direct Seeded Rice (DSR) options at farmer’s field as compared to transplanted rice (TPR) with an objective to reduce cost of cultivation and improve resource use efficiency. Total variable cost saving of 52.06 per cent was observed in direct seeded rice (DSR) as compared to manual puddled transplanted rice. Grain yield under DSR was also recorded significantly higher over the farmers practice but at par with transplanted. On mean basis transplanted rice recorded higher yield (44.78 q/ha) followed by DSR (42.57q/ha) and farmers practice (39.17q/ha). DSR technique obviate the cost of nursery raising, puddling and manual transplanting therefore, reduces the cost of cultivation up to 52 percent. Further, it (DSR) gave 12.02 and 27.56 per cent high net return (Rs51968/ha) and benefit cost ratio (2.25) over transplanted paddy, respectively. Therefore, the puddled transplanting of rice could be replaced with DSR to save water and labour and to reduce the cost of rice production to fetches more return to the rice grower farmers
