Getting the focus right: production constraints for six major food crops in Asian and African farming systems
To determine the most important production constraints and associated yield losses for six major food crops in 13 farming systems with high poverty in Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia and East Asia, surveys were conducted ...
Performance and profitability study of baby corn and tomato intercropping
Intercropping baby corn and tomato may be an option to improve on-farm income on the resource-poor small farms. An experiment was conducted to examine the effect of tomato intercrop on various traits of baby corn, and to ...
Village surveys for technology uptake monitoring: Case of tillage dynamics in the trans-gangetic plains
Agricultural research and development (R&D) would benefit from reliable yet cheap technology uptake indicators to guide decision making. The paper explores the use of village surveys to monitor technology use and illustrates ...
Predicted changes in suitability and agro climatic factors due to climate change for yam production in Nigeria
Monthly data outputs on rainfall and temperature from 18 SRES models for emission scenario obtained from CIAT and white yam production extracted from FAO's Ecocrop were utilized to predict changes in suitability and effect ...
Economic analysis of different options in integrated pest and soil fertility management in maize systems of Western Kenya
The major biotic constraints to the production of maize, the major staple food in Western Kenya, are field pests such as Striga and stem borers, and low soil fertility. To counter these constraints, new cropping systems ...
Triangulating technology diffusion indicators: Zero tillage wheat in South Asia's irrigated plains
Impact assessment hinges on reliable indicators of technology uptake, but this poses particular challenges for new agronomic practices in emerging economies. This paper presents a triangulation approach to assess technology ...
