Controlling foliar blights of wheat in the rice-wheat systems of Asia
(American Phytopathological Society (APS), 2004)
Foliar blight caused by Cochliobolus sativus and Pyrenophora tritici-repentis is the main biotic stress of wheat in the rice-wheat systems of South Asia, where it causes, on average, up to 15% yield loss. Increases in food ...
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 ...
Increasing the productivity of underutilized lands by targeting resource conserving technologies-A GIS/remote sensing approach: a case study of Ballia District, Uttar Pradesh, in the eastern gangetic plains
The Indo Gangetic Plains (IGP) of South Asia, formed by the fluvial action of the Indus and Ganges River systems, is one of the world’s major food grain producing regions. The region supports some of the most densely ...
Adoption and impacts of zero tillage as a resource conserving technology in the irrigated plains of South Asia.
The recent stagnation of productivity growth in the irrigated areas of the Indo-Gangetic Plains of South Asia has led to a quest for resourceconserving technologies that can save water, reduce production costs and improve ...
Adoption and impacts of zero-tillage in the rice-wheat zone of irrigated Punjab, Pakistan
(RWC; CIMMYT, 2007)
This study documents the adoption and impacts of zero-tillage (ZT) wheat in the rice wheat systems of Pakistan’s Punjab province primarily drawing on a detailed empirical survey of 458 rice-wheat farmers. Our random ...
Soil health and sustainability of the rice-wheat systems of the indo-gangetic plains
(CIMMYT; CABI; Rice-Wheat Consortium for the Indo-Gangetic Plains, 2004)
The consecutive cropping of wheat after rice is one of the world’s principal agricultural production systems. This system is practised across an area of about 13 million hectares in South Asia and provides food, income and ...
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 ...
Population densities of rice root nematodes (Hirschmanniella spp.) in long-term fertility experiments in Nepal
(Istituto per la Protezione delle Piante (IPP), 2004)
Long-term soil fertility experiments at Bhairahawa (rice-wheat-rice), Tarahara (rice-wheat), and Rampur (rice-wheatmaize) were sampled to assess the densities of rice root nematodes Hirschmanniella spp. Nematode densities ...
