PS Bodake and YJ Patil
The cost and drudgery of a labour in paddy cultivation has a major input and its saving was quantitatively reduced in PVC Bhat lavani Choukat over the rope method is about to 33.33 % especially two male labours. There is less labour required in conventional method over PVC Choukat on contrary to loss of seed and fertilizers. Overall the PVC Bhat Lavani Choukat has improved the yield by 35.48 % and 12.89% over conventional and rope method respectively due to higher productive tillers over other treatment. Due to application of this PVC Bhat Lavani Choukat for transplanting indicates projected saving for Maharashtra is likely to be labour saving of 51.29 crores and additional income of 322.6 crores from additional yield due to improved method of technology.
