      Seeds are placed by the machine into both dry and moist soil, and then irrigated. A smooth, level seedbed is necessary to ensure that seeds are not planted at depths greater than 10−15 mm. In this technique, fertilizers can be applied at the same time as the seed. Manual weeding also is easier in machine-drilled crops than in broadcast crops. Very recently System of Rice Intensification (SRI) has emerged as a new and promising innovation to growing rice. Evaluation results of SRI, most notably from Madagascar and a number of countries in Asia, have indicated significant potentials for raising the productivity of rice fields many-fold using the practices of SRI.
