The linear part of the yield/N uptake curves plotted for two different soils indicates that N is taken up by rice independently of the pattern and rate of N applications as long as sufficient N is available for uptake by the plant. N uptake determines P and K uptake as long as P and K are sufficiently available in the soil. Surplus applications of P build up considerable soil reserves of total and available P which, above a critical level, become detrimental for yields.
