Abstract

Soils with a red soil color indicate high soil Fe content (for example Ultisol soil), which if flooded or paddy fielded, the Fe 3+ in the soil which is immobile will be reduced to Fe 2+ which is mobile . Fe 2+ in certain concentrations is toxic to plants. Consequently, iron (Fe) poisoning emerges as a significant challenge in newly established rice fields. The initial soil analysis conducted for this study was performed at the Central Plantation Services laboratory. This meticulous analysis is crucial in identifying and addressing the specific challenges that Fe poisoning presents to the viability and productivity of these agricultural lands.. Soil samples were taken in Muara Kelantan Village, Sungai Mandau district, Siak Regency with a depth of 0-25 cm from the ground surface. With the time that the rice fields have been used for 5 years. The initial soil analysis results showed a soil Fe content of 4881ppm.
