Wheat in the cotton-wheat farming systems of the punjab: implications for research and extension
(PARC; CIMMYT, 1986)
The cotton-wheat area constitutes the most important cropping system in Pakistan. Taking those districts in which cotton is grown on at least half of the Kharif irrigated area, 2.2 million ha of wheat are grown in the ...
Increasing wheat productivity in the context of Pakistan's irrigated cropping systems: A view from the farmers' field
(PARC; CIMMYT, 1986)
Over 85 percent of wheat area in Pakistan is now sown to high yielding varieties and the national average fertilizer application for wheat is nearly 90kg/ha of nutrients. Further increases in wheat yields will come about ...
Epidemiology of foliar blights (spot blotch and tan spot) of wheat in the plains bordering the Himalayas
(American Phytopathological Society (APS), 2005)
Helminthosporium leaf blight (HLB), a complex of spot blotch caused by Cochliobolus sativus and of tan spot caused by Pyrenophora tritici-repentis, is a major wheat disease in South Asia. This 2-year study elucidated HLB ...
Characterizing the cereal systems and identifying the potential of conservation agriculture in South Asia
Conservation agriculture (CA) and related resource conserving technologies (RCTs) potentially offer a way to sustainably increase the agricultural productivity in developing countries. These practices, which involve minimal ...
