Optimization of seedling rate for parachute transplanting in bog and half-bog soils

Generally 310 parachute trays are sufficient for seedling broadcasting in one acre but due to the field and environmental conditions, such amount is not sufficient for LCWZ. According to the experimental results, parachute transplanting with 400 parachute trays/ac can be recommended for bog and half bog soils in LCWZ. Both 14 days – 21 days old seedlings are suitable for field establishment under LCWZ conditions.
