8. Which and how much weedicide should be given in drilled paddy?

Spray Butachlor 1.5 kg per hectare for weed control in drilled paddy as pre-emergence (after crop sowing and before weed emergence) and hand weeding once in 30 days after crop sowing is recommended.

9. What is SRI (System of Rice Intensification) paddy cultivation method?

In ‘SRI’ method, the area of paddy nursery should be 100 sq.m (1 guntha) for planting one hectare area. For that make nursery bed (1:1 compost: soil). Generally 5 to 6 kg of paddy seeds are required for planting one hectare of paddy.

8 to 10 days old seedling should be uprooted from soil and transplanted at a distance of 25 cm×25 cm.

Apply light irrigation as per requirement looking to soil type. Use Cono weeder to suppress the weeds between two rows. By using this method, more paddy production can be obtained with less water and cost.

For demonstration of SRI paddy cultivation methods, information and literature, contact nearest Rice Research Scientist of agriculture university or use kisan helpline for more details.


10. How to use liquid fertilizer in paddy crop?

Liquid organic fertilizer can be used for seed treatment, drilling in rows, by drip irrigation and spraying on plants. 3 to 5 ml Liquid biofertilizer mixed with one liter of clean water can be spray on the leaves of the plants, early in the morning or at late evening.
