Judicious irrigation saves water in rice cultivation

Judicious irrigation saves water in rice cultivation

Indian Farming 41(2): 27-28

The authors emphasize that even on coarse-textured soils continuous submergence is only required for a 3-week period after transplanting to ensure seedling establishment. The field may be drained for 1 to 5 days, depending on the weather, before the next irrigation. There will be no adverse effect on yield and 25-50% of water can be saved.
