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 ...
Low-cost quantification of greenhouse gas emissions in smallholder agro-ecoxystem: a comparative analysis of methods
(Transstellar Journal Publications and Research Consultancy, 2015)
Crop nutrient management using Nutrient Expert improves yield, increases farmers’ income and reduces greenhouse gas emissions
(Nature Publishing Group, 2021)
Climate change adaptation, greenhouse gas mitigation and economic profitability of conservation agriculture: some examples from cereal systems of Indo-Gangetic plains
Achieving sustainability of the cereal system in the Indo-Gangetic Plains (IGP) of India under progressive climate change and variability necessitates adoption of practices and technologies that increase food production, ...
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 ...
Soil organic carbon changes after seven years of conservation agriculture in a rice–wheat system of the eastern Indo-Gangetic Plains
Sequestration of soil organic carbon (SOC) is an important strategy to improve soil quality and to mitigate climate change. To investigate changes in SOC under conservation agriculture (CA), we measured SOC concentrations ...
On-farm economic and environmental impact of zero-tillage wheat: a case of North-West India
(Cambridge University Press, 2015)
Conducting farmers participatory field trials at 40 sites for 3 consecutive years in four rice-wheat system dominated districts of Haryana state of India, this paper tested the hypothesis that zero tillage (ZT) based crop ...
Cost-effective opportunities for climate change mitigation in Indian agriculture
Long-term changes in average temperatures, precipitation, and climate variability threaten agricultural production, food security, and the livelihoods of farming communities globally. Whilst adaptation to climate change ...
Climate change and agriculture in South Asia: adaptation options in smallholder production systems
Agriculture in South Asia is vulnerable to climate change. Therefore, adaptation measures are required to sustain agricultural productivity, to reduce vulnerability, and to enhance the resilience of the agricultural system ...
