1. Direct sowing of rice is an ancient practice of rice cultivation in India, particularly in rainfed areas, where farmers totally eliminate the seedling preparation in nursery and transplanting.
2. In rainfed and deepwater ecosystems, dry seed is manually broadcast onto the soil surface and then incorporated either by ploughing or by harrowing while the soil is still dry.
3. In some cases (e.g., deepwater rice areas), the seed is not incorporated after broadcasting.
