Abstract

Continuation of soil puddling for rice transplanting will negate the benefits of minimum soil disturbance practiced in other crops in the rotation (e.g. see Singh et al. (2011) for rice–wheat system). Generally, the methodology of non-puddled transplanting of rice seedlings is the same as for puddled transplanting except for the absence of soil puddling (Haque et al., 2016). Several hundreds of farmers have adopted non-puddled rice cultivation methods where the technologies were demonstrated earlier in Bangladesh. However, the acceptance and profitability of the technology when managed by farmers was not well understood. The aim of the present study was to understand acceptance and profitability of farmers managed non-puddled transplanted rice.
