        Some excerpts:


        "
        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
        (SSNM)<http://irri.org/our-science/crop-environment/site-specific-nutrient-management>
        approach
        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
        optimized)."

        Except for non tilling and mulching , there is nothing in common with NF .
