Improvement in water productivity without yield penalty of direct seeded rice under Micro Irrigation Systems and tillage options in Indo- Gengetic Plain of India
Declining water table in alarming rate is major challenge of sustainability of rice in South Asia. To address this challengea field experiment was conducted from kharif 2012 and 2013 on a loam soil to evaluate the performance ...
Greenhouse gas emissions from agricultural food production to supply Indian diets: Implications for climate change mitigation
(Elsevier Masson, 2017)
Agriculture is a major source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions globally. The growing global population is putting pressure on agricultural production systems that aim to secure food production while minimising GHG emissions. ...

(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 ...
