A review of resource conserving technologies for sustainable management of the rice-wheat cropping systems of the Indo-Gangetic plains (IGP).
Rice and wheat are the staple food crops occupying nearly 13.5 million hectares of the Indo-Gangetic plains (IGP) of South Asia covering Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and Nepal. These crops contribute more than 80% of the ...
Conservation Agriculture in South Asia
The Green Revolution era focused on enhancing the production and productivity of rice and wheat. New challenges demand that the issues of efficient resource use and resource conservation receive high priority to ensure ...
Assessment of the nitrogen management strategy using an optical sensor for irrigated wheat
Blanket fertilizer nitrogen (N) recommendations for large irrigated wheat tracts lead to low N-use efficiency due to field-to-field variability in soil N supply and seasonal variability in yield. To achieve high N use ...
Layering precision land leveling and furrow irrigated raised bed planting: Productivity and input use efficiency of irrigated bread wheat in indo-gangetic plains
Stagnating yield and declining input use efficiency in irrigated wheat of the Indo-Gangetic Plain (IGP) coupled with diminishing availability of water for agriculture is a major concern of food security in South Asia. The ...
Relay planting of wheat in cotton: an innovative technology for enhancing productivity and profitability of wheat in cotton-wheat production system of South Asia
Cotton?wheat (CW) is the second most important cropping system after rice?wheat in South Asia. Sowing of wheat after cotton is usually delayed due to late pickings coupled with time needed for seedbed preparation, resulting ...
Evaluation of precision land leveling and double zero-till systems in the rice-wheat rotation: Water use, productivity, profitability and soil physical properties
In recent years conventional production technologies in the rice?wheat (RW) system have been leading to deterioration of soil health and declining farm profitability due to high inputs of water and labour. Conservation ...
Conservation agriculture in cereal systems of south Asia: Nutrient management perspectives
In past, green revolution has paid dividends through impressive agricultural growth, which helped to keep balance between demand and supply in the past four decades. But, the real challenges have surfaced in the recent ...
