Rice Nutrient Management in California

As a flooded crop, rice presents unique fertility management problems. Fertilizer applications benefit plant health and grain quality, but the misuse of fertilizers can damage crops, contaminate the environment and waste money. With increasing fertilizer prices, the need to focus on careful nutrient management is greater than ever. This guide provides a step-by-step analysis of particular growing situations to allow more informed decisions about nutrient management for rice crops. Chapters cover the basics, from soil types and how flooding affects soil fertility, to a complete analysis of seven nutrients, along with salinity, pH and other potential toxicities.
