Lessons Learnt
· Rice crop was assured with very less cost of cultivation
· No cracking of the soils even during very severe drought as the soil was not puddled
· Easy to work the soil for the next crop of rice where the potato haulm and pumpkin runner could be ploughed in for rice under SRI
· Minimum tillage for the relay or other crops on the farm
· Different items could be sold at the same time to the benefit of both producer and buyer. The buyers could get different items for their market without searching.
· Crops could be taken in a year
· Crop failure is reduced as, if one fails compensated by other, the next rice can be again sown as mixed crop under direct seeded dry sown condition after vegetables
