The paper carries an analysis of Urea Deep Placement technology which is a soil nutrient management technology ideally suited for smallholder farmer agriculture production systems. It makes nitrogen available to the crop throughout its growth cycle.
8In developing countries, the cost of rice production is rising sharply which is forcing farmers to seek improved ways of production that could economise on resource use while increase productivity.
8Studies show that the UDP technology does not only have the potential to improve yields but also presents employment opportunity for women and the youth who can be productively engaged in the deep placement exercise.
