Abstract

Rice is grown in the rainfed lowlands of Cambodia with low input levels on poorly fertile soils and uncertain rainfall. Cow manure (CM), one of the few inputs available, is applied generally to the nursery on which seedlings are prepared before transplanting. Seedlings are transplanted only after sufficient rain falls for crop establishment. Seedling age may range between three weeks and three months. We investigated the effect of fertilizer applied to the nursery and seedling age at transplanting on rice yield.
