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 ...

Increasing genetic yield and mitigating effects of key biotic and abiotic constraints to wheat production in India through international wheat resources and partnerships
(Society for Advancement of Wheat and Barley Research, 2007)
The surplus wheat production in India and the world in the 1990s have eroded in recent years due to stagnating productivity and increasing demands. Production must increase at least 2% annually until 2020 to meet future ...
Controlling foliar blight of wheat in South Asia: A holistic approach
(The Scientific and Technology Research Council of Turkey, 2005)
Foliar blight is a major biotic constraint to wheat in the Gangetic plains of south Asia, particularly in the rice-wheat system. The disease occurs as a complex of spot blotch and tan spot caused by C. sativus and P. ...
