Partnering Indian farmers for environment-friendly and cost-efficient technology

Posted on CSISA Bulletin – Issue 1, India-news, News & Announcements, September 11, 2013

Compared to the more widely used method where seeds are first germinated in a nursery and then the rice seedlings are manually transplanted to the fields, dry direct-seeded rice (DSR) involves sowing seeds directly in the fields with the help of a machine called a Multi Crop Planter. This technique has been popular in some developed countries of the world, including the U.S., but is new for farmers in India.
