Abstract:

The Direct seeded rice (DSR) have potential role in addressing the issues related to water and labour scarcity coupled with Greenhouse gases (GHGs) emission. The result of the present study indicates that DSR cost of production of which lower by 12 percent with 5 % significance level. The returns per rupee of expenditure was found to be higher as against of transplanted rice. The farmers who are practising DSR have higher technical efficiency than Transplanted Rice (TPR) growing farmers. About 35 % of the farmers come in the range 70 -90 Technical Efficiency (TE) in DSR as against of nearly 12 % in transplanted rice. This acknowledges the significance in augmenting the rice production without productivity loss. The awareness campaign and training to farmers about DSR particularly in command area to augment the rice production in Karnataka.
