  • Welcome to the exciting world of e-learning!

    You will find here a large number of e-learning courses have been developed by DRR-RKMP team coalition through a peer-mediated review process. We are here to provide learning opportunities for extension officers and researchers working in Indian Rice sector. Our aim is to enable the trusted rural local organizations that work through the rural families to make efficient use the learning resources necessary to make it relevant and effective in the local aura.

  • About LearnRice Moodle Resource
  • With a view to bringing about knowledge based sustainable rice development, DRR has undertaken an institutional project on Applications of E-Learning in Agriculture: Designing an ODL Learning Content Management System (LCMS) for Rice Technologies. Final product of this project is an e-learning platform namely LEARNRICE.
    The present project is an initiative to gear up with the new technological and content needs of the rice sector near future. The ODL Learning Content Management System (LCMS) for Rice Technologies in place will help enhancing the online and offline training opportunities for the farmers, extension workers, development departments, NGOs and other key actors in large-scale adoption of improved rice technologies and knowledge across the country.  This will help in linking the effective learning with the immediate working conditions of the farmers and other rice workers.  Supporting immediate application of the learning in local situation will be an important outcome of the project.  It is expected that such an innovative extension approach using Open and Distance Learning methods will enhance the access to improved rice knowledge and information across the country, contributing to the agricultural development.  This endeavour will also help opening up new vistas in the distance learning and capacity building in the agriculture sector, a sector on which 65% Indian population depends for its livelihood.

  • HR Overview

    Hybrid Rice is likely to play a pivotal role in increasing the rice production. During the year 2009, hybrid rice was planted in an area of 1.3 m ha and an additional rice of 1.5 to 2.5 mt was added to our food basket through this technology. This innovative and promising technology is expected to contribute significantly towards the food security of the country in the years to come.

  • wipm

    The overall objective of this course is to enable participants to understand the economic importance of losses caused by insect pests in rice and the underlying concepts and principles of IPM relevant to management of these pests on rice crop. The course is designed to develop IPM knowledge among the participants and the course activities use IPM examples from specific areas depending on need. The main target groups of the course are pesticide retailers and agricultural extension officers, State agricultural universities and pesticide industry representatives. The course has been simplified a lot to meet the needs of progressive farmers also.


  • MHRPT Overview

    Maharashtra Rice Production Technology includes Rice Ecosystems, Tillage, Land Preparation, Nursery Management, Seed Sowing, Transplanting, Water & Nutrient Management and Pest & Disease Management specific to Maharashtra.


  • OF Overview

    Organic farming may promote natural control over pests and diseases reduce soil quality deterioration by improving soil organic matter (SOM) and improving microbial activity by increased microbial populations. It reduces the entry of toxicants in the form of pesticides in food chain and minimises the accumulation of toxic residues in the soil and thus promotes the production of clean, quality foods. And, there is a growing demand worldwide, especially in the European region for organically grown food products.


  • PD

    The current global population of 6.4 billions is expected to reach 7.5 billions by 2020 and 9.0 billions by 2050 AD. Most of this population increase will occur in developing countries of Asia and Africa, where rice is the staple food. Globally rice is cultivated now on 155 million hectares with annual production of around 443 million tons and average productivity of 2.85 tons/ha. Around 90 %of the rice is produced and consumed in Asian countries.


  • stbnm

    Crop management over the past four decades in India is driven by increasing use of external inputs. Fertilizers nutrients played a stellar role in improving crop productivity and production. During the period 1969-2010 food grain production more than doubled from about 98 M. tons to 212 M. tons in 2001-02, while fertilizer nutrient use increased by > 12 times from 1.95 M. tons to more than 23 M. tons in 2007-08. Notwithstanding these impressive developments, food grain demand is estimated to increase to > 300 M. tons per annum by 2025 for which the country would require about 45 M. tons of fertilizer nutrients (ICAR, 2008).

  • sri

    The System of Rice Intensification, known by its acronym ‘SRI’, is gaining popularity among paddy farmers in several states. This method has the potential to improve productivity of land, capital, water and labour simultaneously. This system developed in Madagascar in the 1980s has been tried successfully in 25 countries across the world. SRI is a system of growing rice which involves principles that are at times radically different from the traditional ways of growing rice. It involves planting of single and young seedlings with care instead of conventional method of multiple and mature seedlings from the nursery.


  • TN Overview

    Tamil Nadu Rice Production Technology includes Seasons & Varieties and Rice Seasons of Tamil Nadu, Tillage Operations, Nutrient Management, Irrigation Management, Weed Management, Pest Management, Disease Management and Cost of Cultivation.


  • Mech Overview

    Farm mechanization in rice is very important as it aids in the timeliness of operations, eliminates/reduces the human drudgery in farm operations and improves the productivity. Rice cultivation involves a number of labor intensive operations like transplanting, weed control, harvesting etc. The fact that labour is becoming increasingly costly and scarce during peak periods of farm operations also adds a new dimension to this problem. Timely operations carrying out through selective mechanization can also help to realize the potential of rice hybrids.


  • Weed Overview

    For sustainable rice production, controlling weed flora, in addition to insect pests, diseases, rodents and nematodes by innovative techniques is quite essential. This can be achieved through, science based crop-husbandry which includes cultural practices, fertilizer management, irrigation schedules, tillage and weed control practices for optimum utilization of inputs. Innovative technologies need to be developed, especially in wet seeded rice under limited water supply conditions where in the weed problems may be expected to be more varied in species and density.

  • ls

    Vermi composting is an environment friendly process to convert avariety of wastes into valuable agricultural inputs. The key role of earthwormsin improving soil fertility is well known since long. Worms eat dead plant material left on top of the soil andredistribute the organic matter and nutrients throughout the topsoil layer. Inaddition to organic matter, worms also consume soil and soil microbes. The soilclusters they expel from their digestive tracts are known as wormcasts or castings.

E-Learning Platform on Rice is an extension of LearnRice, is a multi-dimensional e-learning platform of DRR. This platform is being developed as a part of LCMS Project of DRR.
In the current scenario of fast changing Technology world, learning is considered to be a lifelong exercise. We appreciate the fact that larger number of rice stakeholders across the country have limitations in terms of access, quality and cost-effective learning opportunities. Not all the stakeholders are privileged to get their rice knowledge updated on 24x7 basis. It is in this context, it is felt that there should be an online platform for enabling & supporting the capacity building exercises in the rice sector of the country. Hence this innovative gateway of learning. E-learning Platform on Rice.
While we continue to provide online learning opportunities, we wish to take these courses to large number of stakeholders through offline CDs and non-digital delivery mechanisms.
