What are the Main Advantages of Rice Seeder?


Advantage of Rice Seeder are as follows:

  • Labor cost of sowing is reduced drastically
  • Seed rate is reduced. Only 25 Kg per hectare is required
  • Uniformity in seed sowing and plant population
  • Crop matures 10 days earlier
  • Light in weight. Very easy to pull in wetland field
  • One person can cover 1 hectare per day

How to Assemble the Seeder?

  • No tool is required to assemble KSNM Seeder
  • Its very simple. Anyone can assemble/disassemble

KSNM Direct Paddy Seeder is made up of plastic materials.  Hence the normal life of plastics are ensured for this seeder. It should be cleaned thoroughly and stored after use.

  • No Maintenance Required
  • No Spare Parts Required
  • No Service Required

How to Handle the Seeder?

  • KSNM Seeder is very light in weight and sturdy in construction
  • It should be handled properly
  • Seeder should only be carried to the field not should never be pulled in roads, fields etc.
  • It can easily be carried in two wheelers
  • Seeder must be operated only in wetland field
  • After sowing, all components must be cleaned with water, dried and stored

How to prepare the field?

  • Field should be leveled perfectly.
  • There should not be any water at the time of sowing
  • Excess water should be drained out completely
  • If there is water in the field while sowing, then seeds will float and line sowing will be disturbed.

How to prepare seed?


  • Soaking : Soak the seed in gunny bag  in water for 24 hours.
  • Incubation : Keep the gunny bag with seed for 12 to 24 hours in wet condition.
  • Drying : Dry the seed in open air for few minutes, so that entire water if removed. Then load the seed drum with pre germinated paddy seed.

How many seeds will fall?

  • 5 to 6 seeds will fall at one place.
  • It depends upon the size of the seed.
  • Continuous and constant pull is required for uniform seed falling. Inconsistent jerks will result more seeds falling.
  • On an average 10 kg per acre is the seed rate.  Seed hole size is 9mm. We can not further reduce the hole size because there will be missing of seed fall.
  • One best way to reduce the seed rate is to mix the real seed with roasted seeds so that out of 6 seeds only 2 are assumed to germinate. Again it is only a suggestion. Farmers can find their own ways to reduce the seed rate.

Is There any Chance of Seeds Blocking in Seed Holes?

  • No chance at all.  As the seeder is being pulled, seed drum rotates and thereby seeds also will be continuously rotating. Baffles are provided in between seed holes.  
  • There may be a very rare chance that seeds may block the seed holes.
  • Wet seeds should not be put inside the seed drum. Pre germinated seeds should be dried in open air and then should be put inside the seed drum.

Will the Leg Impressions Create Problem?

No the leg impressions will be in between two rows. This will not create any problem. There is no need to close the small depressions. At the time of first weeding with cono weeder this is removed.

Can You Show The Comparision?

In direct seeding, plant doesn''t undergo any shock as happens during transplantation.  Crop matures 7 days earlier. With proper weeding one can observe more tillers in direct seeding of paddy. This also results in more productive panicles and naturally yield would be better.

  • Cono weeding is mandatory in direct sowing
  • There are more tillers in direct sowing
  • In the same given condition, yield would be at least 10% higher in direct sowing

How is the yield?

  • Yield depends upon many factor such as seed quality, soil fertility, water management, weed management, pest management etc. Yield can not be decided only by the seeding equipment
  • However in the same given condition, when cono weeder is used at least 3 times for every 10 days from the day of sowing, then yield would be at least 10 % higher than the normal yield.

Factory Visit for Students

Factory visit by students is a regular feature in our company. College authorities can take prior approval to bring students to our factory. We explain the students all the production process and assembly procedure. We show the live demonstration of drip tape installation and functioning of drip system in our garden.

What About Warranty/Guarantee?

No. There is no mechanism involved in the machine. Its simply made up of plastic materials. There is a simple handle to pull along and there is a centre shaft to fix the seed drums. There is no warranty/guarantee.

How Many Seeders Can be Loaded in a Truck?

  • In one truck with 24 feet length and 8 feet height, 250 seeders can be loaded.
  • In one 20'' container 200 seeders can be loaded.

Is There Any Training Required?

No. Not at all.  There is no training required. One has to simply pull the seeder in wetland field. Pull should be consistent and constant without any jerks. This will ensure uniform fall of seeds.

How to control weeds?

  • In direct seeding weeds will be more.  Hence cono weeder must be used atleast 3 times
  • First Weeding : 10 days after sowing
  • Second Weeding : 20 days after sowing
  • Third Weeding : 30 days after sowing
  • If weeding is not taken care, then yield will be severely affected
  • Cono weeding is Must

What Will Happen if There is Rain?

If there is a rain during or within 24 hours of sowing,  then the line sowing will be disturbed.  Seeds will dislocate and spread throughout the field.   The advantage of direct sowing is lost. There should not be any rain for at least 24 hours.  It is good if there is no rain for 48 hours. Direct sowing must be planned  with a forecast of no rain for 24 hours.
