  2. 2. IFDC A Simple Technology with Multiple Benefits Urea Deep Placement (UDP) Amit Roy IFDC
  3. 3. IFDC UDP: Background and Benefits v Urea is the most common nitrogen fertilizer for rice v 1-3 g briquettes (USG)*, in root zone at transplanting v Slower release = nutrient use efficiency improves v Negligible losses to air and water * USG—Urea Supergranule
  4. 4. IFDC How to Prepare USG Prilled Urea Rollers Briquettes USG is produced from prilled or granular urea by pressing the urea with rollers in a briquette machine of 1.8 and 2.7 grams.
