Interpretive Summary

The field validation of the Nutrient Expert® (NE) fertilizer decision support tool, based on the 4R Nutrient Stewardship Principles, continued in 2016 in the early and late rice systems project in Jiangxi and Hunan Provinces. The objective was to compare the NE-based fertilizer recommendation method with soil test-based fertilizer recommendation and farmers' practice (FP).

Field validation of Nutrient Expert® (NE) continued within early and late rice systems in Jiangxi and Hunan Province in 2015. The objective was to test the NE-based fertilizer recommendation method against soil testing and farmer’s practice (FP). In Jiangxi, 14 field validation experiments on early (7 sites) and late rice (7 sites) were studied. In Hunan, 20 field validation experiments on early (10 sites) and late rice (10 sites) were studied.

The Nutrient Expert(R) (NE) for rice decision support system was first validated in early and late rice system in Guangdong, Jiangxi and Hunan in 2014. The objective was to test the NE-based fertilizer recommendation method as compared to soil testing and farmer’s practice (FP). There were 14 field validation experiments on early (7 sites) and late rice (7 sites) in Guangdong.
