On Saturday (22nd Nov 2014), TWA team visited Organic Vile and learned single seedling planting method. The team gathered at the farm by 7.30 and we had brief instruction on how to do the paddy transplantation by Mr. Gopinath Jeyaraja.
We had a very good hospitality at the farm. They gave us healthy breakfast (Koozh) and also delicious lunch (Vegetable Briyani). Not just food, we had lot of fun in the field and also learned many advantages of this in single seedling planting(SRI) method of paddy transplantation.
What is single seedling planting (SRI)?
Commonly it is called as System of Rice Intensification (SRI), which aims to increasing the yield of rice produced. Surprisingly this single seedling planting method was known 100 years ago in Tamil Nadu.
