At the same time, it also guarantees high yield, overcoming the adverse conditions that sometime come up for paddy cultivation.”It often happens that paddy cultivators get worried due to delay in rainfall. But with the use of the methodology, they will no longer have to worry as the chances of crops getting damaged due to the delay in rainfall will become less,” he said, adding that already, paddy cultivation by using the methodology has begun in around 3,000 bighas of agricultural land in many districts. It is expected that more farmers will take up the same in due course of time, as it ensures cultivation in both irrigable and non-irrigable land.
