Abstract:
The study was conducted in Thanjavur, Thiruvarur, Nagapattinam, Trichy, Ariyalur and Cuddalore are the Delta districts covered under Cauvery Delta Zone of Tamil Nadu, in which Government of Tamil Nadu has implemented the Kuruvai Package for the farmers to boost up the production in Kuruvai cultivation during 2015. The major objective of the study is to assess the economics of machine transplanting in Cauvery delta region of Thiruvarur District of Tamil Nadu. The study shows that the gross return and net return were significantly higher in gross return and almost doubled in net return. This mainly because of more tiller per hill was report almost all the farmers who have adopted the mechanical transplanting. Farmers reported that almost 40 to 50 per cent increase in number of tillers per hill. This would increase the over increase in the yield / productivity of the crop.
