Nutrient Expert Development and Assessment

This project aims to (1) develop, test, and refine new versions of Nutrient Expert (NE) for new crops and new geographies in Asia and Africa, (2) conduct field trials and build agronomic database for non-cereal crops (e.g. cotton, cassava), and (3) initiate development of ICT based tools to help in the dissemination of the field validated versions of NE.

IPNI-2010-GBL-52

To evaluate through local partners the Nutrient Expert for Hybrid Maize (NEHM) in farmers’ fields in Indonesia and the Philippines, and (2) to develop, test, and refine new versions of Nutrient Expert (NE) for maize in new geographies (China, South Asia, and Africa) and NE for wheat in China and South Asia.

Interpretive Summary

The objectives of this project are to: 1) develop, test, and refine new versions of Nutrient Expert® (NE) for new crops and new regions (maize in sub-Saharan Africa, rice in China and India, soybean in China, wheat in North Africa and maize with different variety types in the Philippines); 2) conduct field trials and build agronomic database for non-cereal crops (i. e.

The objectives of this project, initiated in 2011, are: (1) to develop, test, and refine the Nutrient Expert (NE) fertilizer decision support tool for new crops and new geographies, maize in sub-Saharan Africa; rice in China and India; soybean in China and India; wheat in North Africa; and maize with different variety types in the Philippines); (2) to conduct field trials and build agronomic databases for non-cereal crops (i. e.

This project's objectives were to: (1) develop, test, and refine new versions of Nutrient Expert® (NE) for additional crops and new geographies (i. e. , maize in sub-Saharan Africa, rice in China and India, soybean in China, wheat in North Africa, and maize with different varieties in the Philippines), (2) conduct field trials and build an agronomic database for non-cereal crops (i. e.

Implemented since 2011, the objectives of this project are 1) to evaluate through local partners the Nutrient Expert(R) for Hybrid Maize (NEHM) in farmers’ fields in Indonesia and the Philippines, and 2) to develop, test, and refine new versions of NEHM for maize in new geographies (i. e. , China, South Asia and Africa) and NE for wheat in China and South Asia, and 3) to develop NE for rice-based cropping systems in China and India.

The objectives of this project initiated in 2011 are to: 1) evaluate through local partners the Nutrient Expert® (NE) for Hybrid Maize (NEHM) in farmers’ fields in Indonesia and the Philippines, 2) develop, test, and refine new versions of NE for maize in new geographies (China, South Asia and Africa) and NE for wheat in China and South Asia, and 3) develop NE for rice-based cropping systems in China and India.

This study was initiated to evaluate the Nutrient Expert® (NE) for Hybrid Maize (NEHM) in farmers’ fields in Indonesia and the Philippines, and to develop, test and refine new versions of NE for maize in China, India, and Africa and NE for wheat in China and India. At the end of 2012, NEHM recommendations have been field tested against existing fertilizer management practices in 534 farmers’ fields or locations.

This study was started in 2010-11 to evaluate through local partners the Nutrient Expert for Hybrid Maize (NEHM) in farmers’ fields in Indonesia and the Philippines, and to develop, test, and refine new versions of Nutrient Expert (NE) for maize in new geographies (China, South Asia, and Africa) and NE for wheat in China and South Asia.
