This photo essay is about plating paddy field. Before plating, take out the scattering seedlings and tie as bunches. After that those bunches of seedlings need to place in blistering field. Previously farmers used cows and buffaloes for that. But nowadays they don’t own/ use them anymore and they carry themselves instead of using cows and buffaloes. Usually men carry bunches of seedlings to the field and women do planting in paddy field. When they plant, they use ropes to place seedlings to be in accord so that it will be more convenient while they are weeding, fertilizing and up to harvesting.
