Difference between SRI method and Traditional method in paddy production In order to show the more clarify comparatives between SRI method and Traditional method in paddy production, the researchers would like to show it based on an economic analysis of Traditional and System of Rice Intensification (SRI) rice cultivation practices in Mahabubnagar district of Andhra Pradesh which is authorized by Rampuram Jayapalreddy and Dr. N. Sandhya Shenoy. In generally, majority of paddy farmers who use the Traditional method are the old age and middle group while the others paddy farmers who use the SRI method are the younger group. The normal household size of Traditional paddy farmers was middle (4-6) and large whereas the normal household size of SRI paddy farmers was medium (4-5). The researchers found out that 40% of the Traditional method paddy farmers was uneducated while the 40% of them are educated. However, all of SRI method paddy farmers were found out to be educated which is 100%. The average land holding for Traditional paddy farmers was 3-5 acres, whereas for SRI paddy farmers was 4-6 acres. The comparison between SRI method and Traditional method in paddy production also based on some aspects such as nursery management, method of transplanting, weed management, method of harvesting and yield and cost cultivation. Nursery management: In the process of nursery management, there are significant different between the SRI method and Traditional method. For the SRI method, it only needed 2kgs of seed per acre for nursery management while for the Traditional method, it needed 30kgs of seed per acre for nursery management. Furthermore, the cost of the nursery management for SRI method was lower than traditional method which was 168 rupees per acre and 1250 rupees per acre. Method of transplanting: There are significant contrasts also between the SRI and Traditional paddy cultivation in the method of transplanting. For SRI cultivation, it only needed 5-8 no’s of labour per acre with method of transplanting. While for Traditional paddy cultivation, it needed more labour than SRI paddy cultivation which was 10-15 no’s. The spacing for the plants and rows in SRI paddy was wider which was (25x25cms) while the plants and rows in Traditional paddy was (20x15cms). In the result, the cost of transplanting for SRI method was 1200 rupees per acre,

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
