      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 .
