Made in Bangladesh: scale-appropriate machinery for agricultural resource conservation
An open-source publication targeted to machinery manufacturers, engineers, researchers and development practitioners, this book describes and provides technical designs for small-scale agricultural machinery developed or ...
Simulation of resource-conserving technologies on productivity, income and greenhouse gas GHG emission in rice-wheat system
(Academic Journals, 2012)
The Rice-wheat (RW) cropping system is one of the major agricultural production systems in four Indo-Gangetic Plains (IGP) countries: India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal of South Asia covering about 32% of the total rice ...
Potassium supplying capacity of diverse soils and K-use efficiency of maize in South Asia
Increased nutrient withdrawal by rapidly expanding intensive cropping systems, in combination with imbalanced fertilization, is leading to potassium (K) depletion from agricultural soils in Asia. There is an urgent need ...
Operational manual for multi-crop zero till planter
(CIMMYT; CSISA; IRRI, 2012)
Multiple challenges associated with plough based conventional production practices that include deteriorating natural resources, declining factor productivity, shortages of water & labor and escalating costs of production ...
Physical and chemical properties of a sandy loam soil under irrigated rice-wheat sequence in the Indo-Gangetic Plains of South Asia
(OMICS International, 2017)
Resource conservation technologies (RCTs) such as zero tillage (ZT), dry direct seeded rice (DSR) and crop residues as mulch are known to increase productivity and profitability of rice-wheat system (RWS) in South Asia. ...
Axial flow pumps can reduce energy use and costs for low-lift surface water irrigation in Bangladesh
With conventional centrifugal pumps (CEN), less than 50% of southern Bangladesh’s farmers invest in dry season irrigation, partly due to high and continually increasing diesel energy costs. Diesel pump efficiencies in ...
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 ...
Operational manual for turbo happy seeder: technology for managing crop residues with environmental stewardship
(CIMMYT; ICAR, 2013)
Multiple challenges associated with plough based conventional production practices that include deteriorating natural resources, declining factor productivity, yield plateau, shortages of water & labour and escalating costs ...
