CHANDIGARH: Several sectors in the city faced waterlogging after heavy rain lashed the city today. Low-lying areas in the city such as the Industrial Area, Phase 1, Ram Darbar, Mani Majra and Hallo Majra were flooded with rainwater.

Thankfully, in the uppity fashion circles of India, the cause of ‘handmade’ has been making the right kind of noises.

By offering 50 per cent subsidy on paddy transplanters, the state government is set to give boost to mechanisation in paddy transplantation in the upcoming season (June and July).

According to statistics compiled by the Agriculture Department, about 12 lakh labourers from outside the state come every year in June and July to transplant paddy. However, over the last few years there is steep reduction in the number of labourers coming to the state. Therefore, farmers get stressed to transplant paddy in small window of 40 days.



He said a walk-behind six row transplantation machine cost around Rs 3.50 lakh. This machine plants 5-6 acres of paddy daily. Similarly, fully mechanised riding type 6-8 row machine costs about Rs 10-15 lakh and can transplant paddy on about 10-12 acres daily.

He said paddy transplanted by machines maintained adequate number of seedlings per unit area which resulted in better yield.

Pannu said about 350 paddy transplanters were tested in Punjab in last two years and the machine had been found successful in efficient planting of the crop.
