Field Handbook: 4R Nutrient Management of RICE in Myanmar

IPNI has developed a 4R concept for nutrient stewardship. The core of this approach is application of the RIGHT source of plant nutrients at the RIGHT rate, the RIGHT time, and in the RIGHT place. The four “Rs” or “rights” of 4R Nutrient Stewardship are essential in the management of plant nutrition to increase sustainability of plant systems. A balance should be maintained among the four “rights” so as not to overemphasize one at the expense of another. IPNI Southeast Asia Program has developed a series of Field Handbooks for Myanmar in local language to share knowledge. Please contact seap@ipni.net for collaboration in Myanmar.
