Abstract:

Rice is major crop in the Dantewada district of Chhattisgarh and about 80 to 90 % of rice cultivation area the farmers doing traditional methods for sowing of paddy i.e. broadcasting of seed. These methods have some problem i.e. poor yield, improper plant population etc. To overcome these types of problems and to make awareness of agricultural machineries the present investigation “Assessment of paddy drum seeder for line sowing of sprouted paddy seed” was conducted in order to reduce labour as well as input cost. In the investigation, we used two different methods of paddy sowing i.e. T1 - traditional method - (broadcasting) and T2 - Sowing of pre-germinated seed by eight row paddy drum seeder. Two different villages of District Dantewada of Chhattisgarh during year Kharif 2019-20 was selected. The results shown that the treatment T1 and T2 gave the average net income 38587 Rs/ha and 48237 Rs/ha respectively. Traditional method gave yield (q/ha.) and B:C ratio were recorded 21 q/ha and 1.66 respectively. Sowing of paddy by paddy drum seeder gave yield q/ha and B:C ratio were recorded 26.28 q/ha and 2.42 respectively. In spite of increased in yield, the improved technology gave higher net return, benefit/cost ratio and reduction in cultivation costs than farmers practices.
