It is essentially an indispensable part to the agricultural sector. Producing rice as efficiently as possible is deemed very important in achieving food sufficiency for the country.

One of the more demanding stages in rice production is the transplanting of seedlings. Compared to the direct seeding method, transplanting requires less seed but much more labor. Mechanized rice transplanting is seen as a solution to lessen labor problems.
