The transplantation of paddy was becoming expensive day by day due to increased labour wages and unavailability of labour during peak season. To address this, the innovators designed and developed an engine-operated paddy transplanter and later modified it to be operated by tractor PTO power. The paddy transplanter is operated by a tractor of 40 hp or more and is mounted on a three-point linkage. It has a simple mechanism for picking, indexing, and transplanting seedlings using the wash-root method of transplanting.
