Transplanting Methods

Manual transplanting

     Manual transplanting is most suited for labour-surplus areas and for small rice fields. Manual transplanting can be done in fields with less than optimal levelling and with varying water levels.

How to Transplant Rice Manually

  • Pull out the seedlings at an average of 15 to 30 days after seeding (DAS) from nurseries and transport them to the main field.
  • In a modified mat nursery, seedlings are ready for transplanting at 15-20 DAS and seedling mats are transported to main field.
  • Transplant the seedlings soon after pulling from the nursery in puddled, leveled field (any delay will lead to slow revival and even death of some seedlings).
  • Transplant 2-3 seedlings per hill at shallow depth at optimum spacing
    (20 cm x 20 cm or 22.5 cm x 22.5 cm).
  • Handle seedlings carefully to ensure their fast revival and rapid growth after transplanting.
