Zinc-Coated Urea Increases Rice Yield 22%

Urea coated with zinc can significantly boost rice yield.

Even just a little amount of zinc in the fertilizer can boost rice yield significantly. Take the case of Yara Vera Viking Ship Zn, a urea with procote zinc technology. In a two-year experiment at the Central Luzon State University (CLSU), Yara Vera Viking Ship Zn increased rice yield by 22 percent. On the other hand, a PhilRice report reveals that if the zinc deficiency in lowland rice is addressed, the potential yield increases up to 1 ton per hectare. Thatโ€™s equivalent to 20 cavans of rough rice.
