A field experiment was conducted in 1998 at Kabootarabad Agricultural Research Station located 40 km southeast of Isfahan, Iran, on a silty clay soil. The effects of pre-planting tillage methods, viz., soil puddling and compaction, and by manual transplanting on soil physical properties, fuel requirement, machine capacity and rice yield were evaluated.
