Land preparation, soil moisture and Seed depth in Direct Seeded Rice

PrintPrintSend to friendSend to friend


Plow the fields during summer to control emerging weeds
Leveling the fields well facilitates uniform irrigation and better germination
Optimum depth of seed:2-3 cm. The seed should be covered by soil for proper
        germination and to avoid bird damage.
In lowlands and finer textured soils, planking may not be necessary after seeding.
Soil moisture content at seeding should be sufficient for proper germination
Surface mulch: helps retain soil moisture longer to improve emergence and reduce
        weed menace
