The efficiency of classical mineral NPK fertilizers is usually low because a major part of these fertilizers does not reach plant roots and ends up polluting groundwaters with nitrates and phosphates. Recently, a novel polymer-coated urea made from recycled plastics was proposed to enhance N availability in cereal production. To evaluate the efficiency of this polymer for rice production, we set up field plots, microplots, and pot experiments with 15N tracing. We compared rice yield, N uptake… CONTINUE READING
