Rice (Oryza sativa) is the most widely consumed staple food especially in Asia which accounts for around 90% of the world's total rice production. In the country, it is staple food of more than 60 per cent population in India. Among the major paddy producing states, Odisha is one of the major contributor in national production. The agro-climatic condition of Odisha is also suitable for production of rice. It is mostly cultivated by broadcasting and transplanting methods during Kharif and only transplanted during Rabi season. Among these, the latter is getting popularised day by day among the farmers due to more yield. In the state four types  of mechanical transplanters have been introduced namely self-propelled eight row, four row walk behind type, four row manual and three row manual paddy transplanter. All these planters have their own limitations and restrictions. Hence, the present study was undertaken to evaluate the transplanters which will be helpful for the farmers to select the suitable transplanter for Odisha condition. The testings were done in Central Farms of Odisha University of Agriculture and Technology, Bhubaneswar. The transplanters were evaluated in terms of planting parameters like missing hills, floating hills and buried hills. The field capacity and, planting efficiency and field efficiency were also measured to recommend a suitable machine. Based on the result, the three row manual transplanter was found to be better in performance on the basis of total unproductive hills (6.89%), planting efficiency (93%), and field efficiency (72%) for Odisha condition.

Keywords: transplanter, missing hill, buried hill, floating hill
