dc.descriptionTo ease the drudgery of transplanting, the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) has developed an inexpensive mechanical rice seedling transplanter so that one trained operator can trasplant 1/3 hectare per day using the machine. It takes four to SIX labourers to transplant the same area by hand. The trasplanter is available in six and eight row models. Transplanting reduces damage by golden snails, since the snails do not oat older seedlings as readily. The new machine can transplant seedlings from 16-35 days old. Almost 3000 units of the six-row transplanter are now in use in Sri Lanka. Their manufacture was catalysed by the Farm Mechanization Research Centre (FMRC), an IRRI cooperator. FMRC engineers have adapted the transmplanter's design to meet local requirements, demonstrated it, framed manufacturers and operators, and initiated financing schemes. The transplanter costs approximately US$150. IRRI PO Box 933 Manila PHILlPPINES
