Rice is a summer cereal crop that is grown primarily in the Murrumbidgee Valley and Murray Valley of New South Wales as these regional, dry hot summers provide optimal growing conditions for medium grain rice. This crop is a vital enterprise in Southern NSW and is recognised as a source of starch in the diet and is generally consumed as a whole grain or as a flour ingredient.

Please note that the above information and recommendations are provided in good faith and are given without liability for loss or damage suffered as a result of their application. Optimum response to fertilisers will only be achieved when weeds, insect pests and diseases are controlled and adequate soil water is available.

Fertiliser use recommendations are presented as a practical guide to good agronomic practice under most situations. Local soil, climatic and other conditions should also be taken into account as these could affect plant response to fertiliser rates and applications.

For further information we recommend you seek advice from your local agronomist.
