Application of fertilizer N doses to rice (Oryza sativa L.) whenever leaf greenness as measured by chlorophyll meter (SPAD) and LCC falls below a fixed threshold is being extensively used for site-specific management of fertilizer N. As fixed threshold greenness varies with regions, rice cultivars and seasons, a dynamic threshold greenness concept in the(More)
Blanket fertilizer nitrogen (N) recommendations for large irrigated transplanted rice tracts lead to low N use-efficiency (NUE) due to field-to-field variability in soil N supply and seasonal variability in yield. To achieve high NUE, a fertilizer N management strategy based on visible and near-infrared spectral response from plant canopies using a(More)
In the Indo-Gangetic plain in South Asia, fertilizer nitrogen (N) application to irrigated wheat in two split doses at planting and at crown root initiation (CRI) stages of the crop is the general recommendation. Farmers have a tendency to apply another dose of N at maximum tillering (MT) stage to avoid the risk of N deficiency. However, appropriate(More)
