    This technology describes the introduction of line sowing techniques and Alternate Wetting and Drying (AWD) method for rice cultivation in the Muzaffargarh District in Pakistan. Line sowing allows for better control of plants population, as distance between plants and rows is uniform and farmers can maintain an optimum rice plant population of 80,000 per acre. The AWD dry method requires smaller amounts of standing water and helps to reduce methane emission and while increasing soil fertility. The implementation of these practices enable farmers to increase their yields and enhance their water use efficiency through better water management
