Technical Report
Penanaman padi tempatan secara tradisional dilaksanakan secara gotong-royong dan berkumpulan. Amalan ini kurang melibatkan penggunaan jentera dan peralatan pertanian moden di sepanjang rantaian aktiviti penanaman padi seperti penyediaan tanah, penanaman, penjagaan tanaman, dan penuaian. Tahap mekanisasi penanaman padi di Sarawak masih tidak banyak...
Technical Report
Penanaman padi di Sarawak kebanyakkannya dijalankan oleh petani kecil. Mereka mengamalkan tanaman tunggal dengan hasil purata 2,905 kg/ha untuk padi basah dan 747 kg/ha untuk padi bukit pada tahun 2012 (DOA 2014). Bagi meningkatkan produktiviti penanaman padi, mereka menggunakan sumber air yang diperoleh daripada kolam takungan sendiri untuk padi b...

Pengurusan kebolehubahan amat penting dalam bidang pertanian tepat. Ia bermula daripada aktiviti penyediaan tanah sawah, penaburan benih, penjagaan tanaman sehinggalah penuaian. Aktiviti penyediaan tanah, penaburan benih dan penjagaan tanaman amat kritikal kerana mempengaruhi hasil pengeluaran. Oleh itu, MARDI telah membangunkan beberapa teknologi...

The management of variability is a very important aspect of precision farming in order to achieve optimum production costs and yields in rice production. It starts from the land preparation, seeding, crops care and maintenance until harvested by farmers. Each process has a unique requirement for managing existing field variability. The use of chemi...

Tracked tractors have been commonly used on paddy fields to overcome soft soil problem. However, triangular-shaped rubber-tracked tractors with high clearance has not been properly tested. The objective of the research was to evaluate the performance of a triangular, rubber-tracked tractor used in paddy fields. This tractor was tested in typical pa...

Land levelling is very critical in rice cultivation since it is the first step in controlling variabilities. The variability of land level in rice fields would affect seeding operation which will cause uneven crop establishment and water management problems resulting in yield loss. In rice cultivation, land levelness of more than 85 percent at ±2.5...

As wet land rice, aerobic rice is also faced with the problem of weeds management. The absences of stagnant water facilitating more weed species to survive and compete with rice plants. Therefore, soil preparation is crucial for reduce weed problems in addition to manual control, which focuses on the rate of herbicides, the growth of rice plants, p...

Rice being the staple food crops, hundreds of land races in it makes the diversity of rice crops. Aerobic rice production was introduced which requires much less water input to safeguard and sustain the rice production and conserve water due to decreasing water resources, climatic changes and competition from urban and industrial users. Mechanizati...

The soft soil problem is a phenomenon that has long faced by farmers, especially in Kedah and Perlis. MADA has begun to detect the soft soil problem in 1999 in Kampung Kubang Nipah. 156 hectares of rice fields were recorded having soft soil problems at that time (MADATV, July 2013). Several countermeasures have been taken by the government to solve...
Article
Land levelling is important to obtain a high yield because it can affect the germinantion and growth of rice plants. In addition, the water requirement with certain level at each stage should be treated with care to maximize the rice production. Currently the farmers use their naked eye to measure the land leveling and the result is not accurate. T...

Penggunaan mekanisasi ladang secara maksimum di sawah padi memerlukan struktur hardpan tanah mestilah sekurang-kurangnya 0.3Mpa bagi menampung beban jentera berat. Tanah jerlus mempunyai lapisan hardpan yang kurang daripada 0.3Mpa. Untuk mengatasi masalah ini, kaedah pengantian tanah digunakan bertujuan untuk memulihkan semula lapisan hardpan yang...
