Rice is a staple food for more than half of world population and plays a vital role in national food security and is backbone of livelihood for billions of households. Therefore, the sustainability of rice eco systems and to increase the production of rice at par with population growth with reduced water and labour use are of major concerns. Direct seeded rice (DSR) method now a days offers an attractive alternative in this face of global water scarcity and escalating production costs. The study was conducted for comparative analysis between Direct seeded rice method and conventional transplanted rice method. The study was conducted in Kaithal district of Haryana state. From this district, two blocks namely Kaithal and Pundri were selected randomly. On the whole a total of 200 rice growing farmers were selected, who were using direct seeded rice method (100) and conventional transplanted rice method (100). Data highlighted significant difference in better rice production technology in water crisis situation (t=11.98*) between direct seeded rice and conventional transplanting.
