Design, Development and Field Evaluation of Manual-Operated Applicators for Deep Placement of Fertilizer in Puddled Rice Fields

Abstract

Deep placement of urea increases nitrogen use efficiency, rice yields, and farm profitability compared to conventional broadcast urea. However, labor shortages for deep placement pose constraints for wider adoption. Therefore, two types of manual-operated applicators, an “injector-type” (non-continuous operation) and “push-type single row” (continuous… (More)
