Aerobic rice is targeted at more favorable environments where farmers can
afford to buy external inputs such as fertilizers
An aerobic rice crop attaining 4-6 t ha-1 yields obtains many of its
required nutrients from the soil. But this "indigenous supply" of nutrients
is typically not sufficient to meet all the nutrient requirements, and
fertilizers will have to be applied.
The site-specific nutrient management
can be used to determine the need for supplemental nutrients in the form of
fertilizers and to achieve optimal management of fertilizers. A useful tool
to assist in the application of N fertilizer is the Leaf Color Chart (LCC).
In the absence of trained extension personnel on SSNM and LCC, an amount of
70-90 kg N ha-1 could be a useful starting point (to be subsequently
Except for non tilling and mulching , there is nothing in common with NF .
