Abstract:

On-farm trials were conducted at farmer’s fields in West Godavari district of Andhra Pradesh during Kharif, 2016 and 2017 seasons to evaluate the yield in machine planted rice in comparison to manual transplanting. Pooled mean of two years indicated that machine planting recorded significantly higher number of tillers (23.46), higher number of productive tillers (18.02) resulting in higher yields (6686.8 kg/ha). Economic analysis was calculated to know the cost of cultivation of rice production in machine planted and manual transplanting. Results indicated that the total production cost i.e, cost of cultivation was low in machine planted crop (Rs. 44,343/ha) compared to manual transplanting (Rs. 52,225/ha). The Benefit Cost ratio was higher in machine planting (1.68) than in manual transplanting (1.36).
