Potential impact of climate change trends on wheat production and mitigation strategies in Afghanistan
(Canadian Center of Science and Education, 2015)
Climate change is here and continues unabated. It is expected to affect different biological processes differently. Afghanistan has a varied climate profile and depends heavily on wheat, the staple food of its 30 million ...
Applications of raised-bed planting systems to wheat
Wheat has traditionally been planted in solid stands, especially in irrigated environments and rainfed production systems with moderate to high rainfall. Wheat is usually planted by either drilling closely spaced rows 10-30 ...
