Effect of different tillage and seeding methods on energy use efficiency and productivity of wheat in the Indo-Gangetic plains
Conservation agriculture (CA) based crop management technologies specially zero- or minimum-tillage are being rapidly adopted by the farmers in intensively cultivated wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) production systems of South ...
Conservation agriculture in cereal systems of south Asia: Nutrient management perspectives
In past, green revolution has paid dividends through impressive agricultural growth, which helped to keep balance between demand and supply in the past four decades. But, the real challenges have surfaced in the recent ...
Carbon footprint and economic sustainability of pearl millet-mustard system under different tillage and nutrient management practices in moisture stress conditions
Pearlmillet (Pennisetum glaucum L.) ? mustard (Brassica juncea L.) is an important cropping system of limited water and marginal land areas grown under improper crop establishment and imbalanced fertilization. Conservation ...
Crop response and economics of phosphorus fertiliser application in rice, wheat and maize in the Indo-gangetic plains
Phosphorus (P) is one of the major essential plant nutrients. Physiological processes and yield of cereals are adversely affected in soils deficient in phosphorus. Phosphorus deficiency is widespread in Indian soils and ...
Assessment of the nitrogen management strategy using an optical sensor for irrigated wheat
Blanket fertilizer nitrogen (N) recommendations for large irrigated wheat tracts lead to low N-use efficiency due to field-to-field variability in soil N supply and seasonal variability in yield. To achieve high N use ...
Potassium Fertilization in Rice-Wheat System across Northern India: Crop Performance and Soil Nutrients
Rice (Oryza sativa L.)-wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cropping in South Asia is under stress due to widespread removal of plant nutrients in excess of their application. We evaluated K, S, and Zn application to rice and wheat ...
Guidelines for dry seeded rice (DSR) in the Eastern Gangetic Plains of India
(IRRI; CIMMYT, 2013)
Dry seeded rice (DSR) is becoming an attractive option for farmers as it has a much lower labor requirement than manually transplanted rice. Labor for transplanting rice has become scarce and costly because laborers are ...
