Impact of Technology on Paddy Farms in Karaikal Region of Union Territory of Pondicherry

The present study conducted in Karaikal region of the Union Territory of Pondicherry during 2002-03 has revealed that paddy production through the direct-sown method is more profitable as compared to the traditional transplanting method. Direct-sown method reduces the requirements of plant nutrients, irrigation and labour and thereby costs of production. The productivity, however, has been found less with the direct sowing than the traditional sowing. But, due to reduction in production costs, farmers could realize higher net income from the adoption of direct-sown method. The technical efficiency is also less on direct seeded farms, indicating a need for improving farmers' skills in the application of new technology.
