MASINAG TECHNOLOGY FOR PALAY PRODUCTION PER HECTARE 1. Land Preparation a.

Soak the field for 5 days before plowing b. Harrow 2 times with 5 days gap c. Spread 1 bag 14-14-14 before last harrowing d. Level the field to allow water reach all areas e. Apply 1 liter Masinag 1 day before transplanting. (1% dilution w/ water) f. Transplant Seedling Preparation a. Select good seeds b. Soak the seeds for about 16 to 18 hours in water mixed with 1% of Masinag until the seeds swell. c. For every 4 to 5 kg of seeds inbred, prepare a seedbed measuring 40 square meters. Each bed must be about 2 m wide and 20 m in length with drainage canal between plots. d. After preparing the seedbed, apply 1 to 1.5 bags of organic materials like compost and carbonized rice hull for every 40 m2 seedbed or 10 kilos 1414-14 in the absence of organic materials, before seed broadcast. e. Once the seedbed is prepared, broadcast 20 kg of pre-germinated seeds at a rate of 100 grams, this is about a handful-for every square meter. This will prevent seeds from clumping together to avoid competition for nutrients and other growth factors. f. After 5 days, spray with Masinag. This will loosen the soil, and make pulling of seeds easier. This will also prevent root damage, thus reducing transplanting stress. g. After 10 days, apply 5 kg Urea per 40sqm. h. The seedlings are ready for transplant in about 16 to 20 days. Innovative Transplanting (Inbred) a. Transplant 1 to 2 seedlings per hill (slightly slanted). b. Distance should be 16cm x16cm (dry season) and 20cm x 20cm (wet season), c. Transplant depth should be 2cm d. This method only requires 40 kg of seeds per hectare. e. Replant missing hills within 7 days after transplanting. Intermittent Irrigation a. During transplant, water should be minimal. b. Let paddy dry for about 5days), for tillering. c. Put 1 cm to 2 cm water after 5 days d. When water dries, put 1 cm to 2 cm water, continue up to 10 days before harvest e. 10 days before harvest, stop irrigating 5. 6. Weeding – follow usual weeding practice Fertilization (Transplant Method) a. 14 days after planting (DAP), apply 1 bag Urea and 1 bag Ammosul. b. 16 DAP, spray 1-1/2 liter Masinag Organic per Ha. (1% dilution w/ water) c. 23 DAP apply 1 bag 14-14-14. d. 25 DAP, spray 1-1/2 liter Masinag Organic per Ha. (1% dilution w/ water) e. During early flowering stage, spray 1 liter Masinag Organic per Ha. (1% dilution w/ water) Fertilization (Broadcast Method) a. Broadcast germinated seeds. b. 20 days after broadcasting (DAB), apply 1 bag Urea and 1 bag Ammosul. c. 22 DAB, spray 1-1/2 liter Masinag Organic per Ha. (1% dilution w/ water) d. 34 DAB apply 1 bag 14-14-14. e. 36 DAB, spray 1-1/2 liter Masinag Organic per Ha. (1% dilution w/ water) f. During early flowering stage, spray 1 liter Masinag Organic per Ha. (1% dilution w/ water)
