1. Dry plough the field three weeks before planting time and submerge by flooding with 5 – 10 cm of standing water.

2. Add 10 tonnes of farm yard manure, or 10 – 20 tonnes of green manure (Sesbania, Sunhemp, Glyricidia or cowpea) and incorporate by puddling.

3. These green manure crops could be sown in pre-kharif season. Apply basally recommended fertilizers for your area before the last puddle and incorporate. Level fields well.
