DSR is the cost effective and eco-friendly technology which implies on time saving, water saving, labour saving and resource conservation in paddy cultivation. It is a sustainable alternative technology over conventional puddled transplanted rice (CT-PTR) to tackle the adverse climatic changes. It maximizes the net income of farmers by decreasing the cost of cultivation per unit area. The quantitative and qualitative yield can be obtained by timely sowing, selection of suitable cultivars according to land profile, optimum seed rate, weed and water management. In future, it mitigates the hunger and food insecurity by adopting economical feasible technology as compare to conventional puddle transplanted rice.
