MOET for lowland rice

The minus-one-element technique (MOET) is a crop diagnostic tool for lowland rice soils developed by researchers from PhilRice, Dr. Cezar P. Mamaril and Mr. Josue Descalsota. MOET is a test to identify the limiting or deficient nutrients in the soil through a simple pot experiment.

Such technique is based on the principle, referred to as the law of minimum, which simply means that the plant's growth and yield are limited by the deficient nutrients. “The plant itself is a good indicator on what is going on in the soil.

Identify first what is limiting in the soil and be assured of an increase in yield,” Dr. Mamaril pointed out during the open forum discussion.

He added that, although the technique may sound too technical, it’s actually farmer-friendly as they need not technical knowledge to determine the deficient nutrient in the soil.

MOET, according to him, is friendlier and easier to use than the conventional soil test kit being used in the laboratory.

TITLE: MINUS ONE ELEMENT TECHNIQUE AS A CROP DIAGNOSTIC TOOL FOR RICE SOILS


ALAM BA NINYO KUNG ANO ITONG TINATAWAG NA “MINUS-ONE-ELEMENT TECHNIQUE (MOET)?

ITO AY ISANG CROP DIAGNOSTIC TOOL PARA SA LOWLAND RICE SOILS NA NAGAWANG MAISAKATUPARAN NG MGA MANANALIKSIK NG PHILIPPINE RICE RESEARCH INSTITUTE.

NANGUNA SA PANANALIKSIK NA ITO SINA DR. CESAR P. MAMARIL AT JOSUE DESCALSOTA.

ANG MOET AY ISANG URI NG TESTING PARA MATUKOY ANG “LIMITING O DEFICIENT NUTRIENTS” SA MGA LUPANG SAKAHAN SA PAMAMAGITAN NG SIMPLENG POT EXPERIMENT.

ANG NATURANG TEKNIK AY BASE SA PRINSIPYO NA “THE LAW OF MINIMUM” NA NANGANGAHULUGAN NA ANG PAGLAKI AT PRODUKSIYON NG BAWAT TANIM AY LIMITADO SA KAKULANGAN NG SUSTANSIYA.

AYON KAY DR. MAMARIL, ANG TANIM MISMO AY MAINAM NA INDIKASYON KUNG ANO ANG NANGYAYARI SA LUPANG SAKAHAN, KUNG KAYAT KAILANGANG MALAMAN KUNG ANO ANG MGA KAKULANGAN NG SUSTANSIYA AT MAGAWAN AGAD ITO NG PARAAN.

INIHAYAG PA NI DR. MAMARIL NA BAGAMAN, NAPAKA-TEKNIKAL KUNG PAKINGGAN ANG TEKNIK NA ITO, ITO NAMAN AY FARMER FRIENDLY DAHIL HINDI NA KAILANGAN NG MGA MAGSASAKA ANG TECHNICAL KNOWLEDGE PARA MATUKOY ANG DEFICIENT NUTRIENT SA MGA LUPANG SAKAHAN.
