Tegra Rice Transplanter

SYNGENTA, theย multinational company that is engaged in the development or rice and corn technologies, is developing a new system for rice production in India that could be eventually adopted in other rice-producing countries in Asia and elsewhere. A component of the Tegra rice production technology is the use of a transplanting machine that transplants the 21-day-old seedlings in straight rows at two seedlings per hill. The machine can plant four to five hectares in eight hours of operation. The transplanting of young seedlings provides longer time for the rice plants to develop more tillers than when the seedlings are planted 30 days old or older as is often done by many farmers.
