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 ...
Maize-poultry value chains in India: Implications for Research and Development
Rapid growth of the poultry industry in India has caused an increased demand for maize (Zea mays L.). Poultry feed contains 60-65% of maize and approximately 50% of India's annual maize harvest of 19 million tons is used ...
Analysis of genetic diversity in the North Eastern Himalayan (NEH) maize landraces of India using microsatellite markers
Population DNA fingerprinting of 48 selected North Eastern Himalayan (NEH) landrace accessions was undertaken using 41 polymorphic fluorescent dye-labelled microsatellite/Simple Sequence Repeat (SSR) markers, using a DNA ...
Household inventories and marketed surplus in semisubsistence agriculture
A model of semisubsistence agriculture explicitly accounting for the ability of farm households to hold inventories of staple foods is developed. Comparative statics analysis highlights the potential importance of wealth ...
Wheat improvement in India: present status, emerging challenges and future prospects
India is the second largest producer of wheat in the world, with production hovering around 68–75 million tons for past few years. The latest estimated demand for wheat production for the year 2020 is approximately ...
Microsatellite marker-based diversity and population genetic analysis of selected lowland and mid-altitude maize landrace accessions of India
Maize (Zea mays L.) harbours significant genetic diversity not only in its centre of origin (Mexico) but also in several countries worldwide, including India, in the form of landraces. In this study, DNA fingerprinting of ...
