About the Practice

Spread the leaves of piludi or Tooth Brush tree (Salvadora persica) at the bottom of a closely knit bamboo basket and fill it with the paddy seeds. Then pour about 10-12 L of water slowly over the basket. Cover it with the leaves of the same tree and put weights on the basket to keep the seeds pressed. If felt necessary, sprinkle a little water over the basket a couple of times. Keep the basket undisturbed for about 24 hours after which sow the seeds in the nursery immediately. Sometimes, the leaves of Aval or Tanner's cassia (Cassia auriculata) tree are used instead of the leaves of Tooth Brush tree.
