  1. Seeding from 1m2 from this method is enough for 200 mfield transplanting
  2. In this method 2.5 times more seeds are needed than any other method
  3. Paddy rom this method shows flower before 4 days.
  • Transplanting
  1. Idle age-maximum 4 leaves minimum 3
  2. Kharif- 20-30 days seedlings- 20*15cm
  • Rabi- 30-35 days seedlings-15*15 cm
  1. Puddling is done in rice field to reduce water leakage.

  • Pusa 1460 is world’s first superfine cereal.
  • Pusa basmati-1121 has total contribution of 75% in basmati rice export in India.
  • New variety Kohsar is developed on 6 Nov,2011 for top region in Jammu & Kashmir.
