  2. 2. SRI  Multiple seedling  Deep establishment  Difficult for rapid weeding SRI Equipment Workshop, Asian Institute of Technology, Bangkok 1-3 Nov 2014 high cost non-accessible service dependent
  3. 3. Parachute transplanting or seedling throwing of rice seedlings reduces rice transplanting drudgery SRI Equipment Workshop, Asian Institute of Technology, Bangkok 1-3 Nov 2014 Bubble tray for rice seedlings
  4. 4. Reduces cost Increases yield Increases productivity Reduces drudgery Very straight rows in both directions Important especially for when powered weeder and/or Multi-row weeder is employed (No separate marker needed) SRI Equipment Workshop, Asian Institute of Technology, Bangkok 1-3 Nov 2014
  5. 5. Seedlings are placed in two seedling holder plates Device is moved to the next position guided by front and side markers The holder plates are dragged sideways Seedlings with soil plugs intact are dropped into 16 tubes which guide them down on to the muddy field at fixed points SRI Equipment Workshop, Asian Institute of Technology, Bangkok 1-3 Nov 2014 Rice seedlings are grown in nursery trays
