Mapping field-scale yield gaps for maize: An example from Bangladesh
Accurate estimation of the size and spatial distribution of the yield gap has many practical applications, including relevance to precision agriculture and technology targeting. The objectives of this study were to illustrate ...
Water saving in rice-wheat systems
(Taylor & Francis, 2005)
Water shortage is a major constraint to sustaining and increasing the productivity of rice-wheat systems. Saving water can be elusive in that reducing seepage, percolation and runoff losses from fields does not necessarily ...
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 ...
Maize-rice cropping systems in Bangladesh: Status and research needs
(david Publishing, 2009)
Maize-rice cropping systems are expanding in Bangladesh. Hybrid maize has increasing demand and value, particularly for poultry feed, while rice remains the traditional dominant starch staple food. Bangladesh maize yields ...
