Seed placement

PrintPrintSend to friendSend to friend

1. Rice seeds must be placed close to the soil surface.

2. When dry seeding into heavier clay soils, place seeds within 10 to 15 mm of the surface.

3. If seeds are placed at depths greater than this, surface sealing will restrict the number of shoots that emerge and increase the time to emergence.

4. When wet seeding, seeds should not sink below the puddled surface.

5.Where possible the water is allowed to partially clear before seeding.

6.This may require waiting for up to 48 hours after puddling.
