Impact of zero tillage in India's rice-wheat systems
(CIMMYT / RWC, 2007)
Zero tillage impacts in India's rice-wheat systems: A review
To date, the most widely adopted resource conserving technology in the Indo-Gangetic Plains (IGP) of South Asia has been zero-tillage (ZT) wheat after rice, particularly in India. The paper reviews and synthesizes the ...
Specification effects in zero tillage survey data in South Asia's rice-wheat systems
Specification effects in terms of how technology options are contrasted can introduce bias in impact assessment. In a companion paper we evaluated the on-farm impacts of zero tillage (ZT) wheat as a resource-conserving ...
The evolving maize sector in Asia: Challenges and opportunities
Asia's maize (Zea mays L.) sector has shown rapid growth during the last few decades. This article reviews the evolving maize sector in Asia, focusing on the eight main maize-producing countries: China, India, Indonesia, ...
Crop-livestock interactions along agro-ecological gradients: A meso-level analysis in the Indo-Gangetic Plains, India
Although conceptually simple and often idealized, disentangling crop-livestock interactions typically proves more complex in practice. Part of the complexity arises from their changing nature along agricultural intensification ...
Poverty mapping based on livelihood assets: A meso-level application in the Indo-Gangetic Plains, India
Poverty maps are an increasingly popular mode of visualizing the spatial dimension of poverty. They help guide priority-setting and target poverty-alleviation interventions. The utility of poverty maps can be enhanced by ...
Livelihoods and agro-ecological gradients: A meso-level analysis in the Indo-Gangetic Plains, India
Rice-wheat systems in the Indo-Gangetic Plains (IGP) have long exemplified South Asia's agricultural transformation through the Green Revolution. The same systems now also typify the post-Green Revolution stagnation and ...
Livelihood assets as a multidimensional inverse proxy for poverty: A district-level analysis of the Indian indo-gangetic plains
The measurement of poverty is important yet problematic and controversial. This study assesses livelihood asset indicators from the sustainable livelihood approach as a multidimensional inverse proxy for poverty. The study ...
Livelihoods-based impact assessment in the rice-wheat farming system of South Asia
This article reports on an ex-ante impact study in the Indo-Gangetic Plains of South Asia. The study, guided by a livelihoods approach, developed a spatial-mapping methodology based on secondary data for 18 variables which ...
Resource scarcity gradients and agricultural technologies: Scoping implications in the post-green revolution Indo-Gangetic Plains
The green revolution converted the Indo-Gangetic Plains (IGP) into South Asia's cereal basket. The recent slowdown in cereal productivity growth and continuing poverty in the IGP pose a major challenge to agricultural ...
