With climate change and water availability affecting cropping patterns, it is critical for today’s rice farmer to be able to plant on-time and on-schedule. Mechanical rice transplanters empower the modern farmer to take charge of his planting schedule and not be dependent on seasonal labor. Mechanical rice transplanters are used for faster and efficient rice seedling transplanting. This method of transplanting results in uniform planting distance and planting depth, both of which promotes better-yielding harvests for the farmer.
There are various types of transplanters: the walk-behind transplanter and car-like pedal operation transplanter.
- Increase in yield harvest that results in higher income
- Reduction in labour cost – requires only 2 people to operate
- Faster and efficient rice seedling transplanting
- Results in uniform planting distance and planting depth
