The traditional methods of paddy sowing leads to excessive consumption of water, which resulted in depletion of water table, said the CM adding that some districts had fallen in red zone category.In a fervent appeal to farmers, Bhagwant Mann said, ‘’This season not only you yourself come forward for direct sowing of rice but also motivate your relatives and friends for this in interest of Punjab. Joint efforts can save the decreasing water table and all of us should join hands for this noble cause.’’

This technique will also helpful in getting increased production of wheat in the fields, where direct sowing of paddy was adopted.Notably, Bhagwant Mann held a meeting with 24 farmers’ organisations on April 17, where he urged them not only to adopt the direct sowing method but also to make aware others for this so that the water table could be maintained. He had also directed the officials to motivate farmers for saving precious water and electricity with the DSR technique in paddy season by visiting in villages.
