Paddy is the main crop in Kharif season. Traditional paddy farming requires a lot of hard work and water. It also costs more. In direct sowing of paddy, plants are planted directly in the field without preparing a nursery. Farmers sow seeds directly with a seed drill machine. This saves money, time and hard work.

Wet method:

  • Deep irrigation is done before sowing.
  • Second irrigation is done after 2-3 days.
  • The field is prepared and sowing is done with a drill.
  • The seeds are lightly compacted and covered with soil.
  • Moisture is preserved by sowing in the evening.

Dry method:

  • The field is prepared well.
  • After mechanical sowing, water is given for germination or rain is waited for.
  • If proper germination is not achieved after one irrigation, then second irrigation is done after 4-5 days.

Advantages of direct sowing of paddy:

  • Less use of water.
  • Crop is ready on time.
  • It is weed free.
  • Less use of pesticides.
  • Labor cost is less.
  • No need to prepare nursery.
  • Reduction in methane emission and global warming potential.
  • Soil is not damaged.
