Abstract:

Farm Mechanization in rice aims to not only to reduce labour, inputs, human drudgery but also at improving farm productivity. Due to shortage of labour, scarcity of water and energy, the weed competition is going to be the major constraint in achieving higher production in transplanted rice. In order to standardize the selective mechanization for enhancing productivity and profitability of rice, two field experiments were conducted during Kharif 2012 and 2013 at Perunthalaivar Kamaraj Krishi Vigyen Kendra (PKKVK), Puducherry State experimental farm in a Randomized Block Design with three replication and four treatments (T1- Mechanical transplanting-15 days old seedlings with SRI principles, T2- Drum seeding with SRI principles, T3- Normal Transplanting-Best management practice with Flooded system and T4- Farmers practice of the location specific) were taken. Among the various treatments the results revealed that the mechanical transplanting followed by SRI principles with 15 days old seedlings was performed excellent by registering higher grain yield of 6240 and 5630 kg ha-1 during Kharif 2012 and 2013 respectively. The study of the economics of different treatments of two seasons’ results revealed higher net returns and Benefit cost ratio in the Drum seeding with SRI principles followed by Mechanical transplanting followed by SRI principles with 15 days old seedlings
