Scarcity of irrigation water, shortage of farm laborers and increasing cost of rice cultivation in conventional transplanting in puddled soil, forcing rice farmers to explore the alternatives of transplanting. The field experiments were conducted at Instructional Farm of Krishi Vigyuan Kendra, Ambedkar Nagar, Uttar Pradesh to study the different crop establishment techniques on growth yield and economics of rice in agro-climatic condition of eastern Uttar Pradesh during kharif 2014 & 2015. The experiment was laid out in a randomized block design with four replications and short duration ricevariety Sushk Samrat was used as test variety. Variety specific package of practices were adopted for the realization of full potential of the tested rice variety. The treatment structure comprises of dry seeded rice with drum seeder (DSR); wet drum seeding after dry tillage (NWSR), wet drum seeding on puddled soil (WSR) and transplanting after puddling (PTR). Among rice crop establishment methods direct seeded rice with drumseeder (DSR) was found most economic feasible method with high grain yield. Direct-seeded rice with drum seeder (DSR) had shorter crop duration, required less water and therefore had higher water-use efficiency than the transplanting method.
