This research provides the basis for PI Tissue Testing Service which enables growers to accurately determine their rice crops growth and recommends if additional nitrogen is required.
It provides benefit to rice growers by improved nitrogen management of rice crops which leads to increased grain yield, water use efficiency and profitability which all result in making the rice industry in Australia more competitive.
The use of the NIR instrument to analyse rice samples for numerous rice research projects at low cost is a major advantage of the project resulting in more efficient use of rice research dollars allowing more research for the same investment.
