Deficiency of iron in children, will cause anemia, recurrent infections, low intelligence, emotional distress, and even can cause permanent brain damage. In Indonesia about 30-60 %, children under five year old and woman pregnant who suffer from deficiency of micronutrients. National high level rice consumption reach 125 kg capita-1 year-1, is an opportunity to reduce micronutrient deficiencies, especially by iron biofortification method, by cultivated of rice plants on the new opening area that are rich in Fe dissolved. The aims research to improve the productivity on the new opening area gripped Fe, with target of production grain weight > 7 Mg ha-1 with a method to harvest rice biofortified high iron levels with a target of > 30 mg kg-1. The results of the research show that: 1). The highest production obtained on variety of Mekongga with coconut water treatment, they are reached grain weight 7,42 Mg ha-1; and 2) The level of iron in rice grains, in all varieties of the plant growth regulator treatments showed between 18.8-36.2 mg kg-1.
