Abstract

The Nakhon Sawan Rice Seed Center hopes to introduce a new rice sowing technology to small-scale farmers in an attempt to reduce labor and costs. Our team evaluated the current rice planting practices and obtained information from the small-scale farmers, the rice sowing machine inventor and Rice Seed Center representatives in order to form recommendations regarding improvements that could be made to the current machine and suggest ways to initiate the adoption and diffusion process.
