Among the various agro-techniques uprooting aged seedlings and ideal number of seedling/hill are the two supreme important agronomic practices for attainment the higher grain yield of rice, under both sufficient and limited resource conditions. Number of seedling per hill theatres a most important role in relative to maximise grain yield of rice and also for communal rice varieties. If fewer number of seedlings per hill is used, the probable yield cannot be realize, If extra seedlings is used it might not be cost effective. It becomes imperative therefore to find out the optimum number of seedlings required per hill for producing high number of panicles, number of effective tillers per hill at harvest, number of filled grains per panicle, optimum size and shape of grains and ultimately higher yield of high quality and quantity both. The suitable time of nursery preparation and transplanting of seedlings at early stage is most important to get good results from the crop and also the optimum number of seedlings according to status of soil and management practices is one of the non-monetary inputs for farmers especially in resource limited conditions. Such techniques of crop production not only adopted in developing countries but also in developed countries because it has been reported from across the globe about how much such techniques are important to increase agricultural production along with cost effective, environment friendly and conserve natural resource too.
