Abstract:

The farmers under Upper Krishna command areas are experiencing severe water scarcity, high labour cost and unavailability of labour for agricultural production due to adverse climate change. To overcome this problem, Direct Seeded Rice (DSR) method was introduce under UKP command areas.The average crop yield of paddy under DSR method was 5.85 and 6.20 t.ha-1 andin Transplanting Practices(TP) it was 5.23 and 5.45 t.ha-1during kharif 2018 and 2019 respectively against potential yield of 7.5 t.ha-1.Adoption of DSR method in paddy cultivation enhanced crop yield up to 10-13 % by using 30 % less crop inputs such as irrigation water and fertilizer and it minimizes the pest and disease incidence. Increase in crop yield under DSR stretched the B:C ratio up to Rs. 2.77 higher than traditional practices. The study suggests that, adoption of DSR method in paddy cultivation minimizes the cost of crop inputs, pest and diseases incidence and conserves the irrigation water for future generation.
