Abstract: The introduction of hybrid paddy seeds into rice farming system of Odisha has attracted almost all paddy growers. Because of high production potentiality and more profit the tribal farmers have been cultivating hybrid paddy and area is increasing over the years. Both farmers and distributors are experiencing constraints. There is considerable gap in adoption of recommended practices of hybrid paddy seeds leading less profit which requires Govt support in terms of incentives and technical support. The problems of seed distributors are lack of storage facility, quick germination while in store and timely supply of seeds to the growers. These problems need well thought programming of hybrid paddy cultivation in the state particularly in tribal zone as the tribes cannot afford to bear loss.
