Predicting yield and stability analysis of wheat under different crop management systems across agro-ecosystems in India
(Scientific Research Publishing Inc., 2017)
The objectives of the study were as follows: 1) to evaluate the GxExM for wheat genotypes; 2) to predict yield performance and identify high stable wheat genotypes in different management practices; and 3) to make ...
Reducing global warming potential through sustainable intensification of Basmati rice-wheat systems in India
This study examines the effects of tillage, residue management and cropping system intensification through the inclusion of green gram on the performance of the rice-wheat (RW) system in NW India. We hypothesized that zero ...
Assessing soil properties and nutrient availability under conservation agriculture practices in a reclaimed sodic soil in cereal-based systems of North-West India
(Taylor & Francis, 2018)
Soil quality degradation associated with resources scarcity is the major concern for the sustainability of conventional rice-wheat system in South Asia. Replacement of conventional management practices with conservation ...
The conservation agriculture roadmap for India: policy brief
(ICAR; CIMMYT, 2018)
Agriculture remains central to the Indian economy, providing livelihood to the majority of its population. Though Indian agriculture have made spectacular progress for food self-sufficiency, yet growing challenges of large ...
Cost-effective opportunities for climate change mitigation in Indian agriculture
Long-term changes in average temperatures, precipitation, and climate variability threaten agricultural production, food security, and the livelihoods of farming communities globally. Whilst adaptation to climate change ...
Learning adaptation to climate change from past climate extremes: evidence from recent climate extremes in Haryana, India
(Emerald Publishing Limited, 2020)
Conservation agriculture-based wheat production system (CAW) can serve as an ex ante measure to minimize loss due to climate risks, especially the extreme rainfall during the wheat production season in India. This study ...
Greenhouse gas measurement from smallholder production systems: guidelines for static chamber method
(CIMMYT; ICAR, 2014)
Renewed interest in quantifying greenhouse gas emissions from soil has led to development and application of multitude of techniques. But, chamber-based flux measurement technique is most common and frequently used method ...
