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 ...
Simulation of resource-conserving technologies on productivity, income and greenhouse gas GHG emission in rice-wheat system
(Academic Journals, 2012)
The Rice-wheat (RW) cropping system is one of the major agricultural production systems in four Indo-Gangetic Plains (IGP) countries: India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal of South Asia covering about 32% of the total rice ...
Rice wheat cropping systems in Faizabad District of Uttar Pradesh, India: exploratory surveys of farmers' practices and problems, and needs for further research
The rice-wheat (R-W) cropping pattern is very important in eastern Uttar Pradesh (U.P.), India (Figure 1). Of the 18 Districts (three divisions) in this part of the State under the responsibility of the Narendra Deva ...
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 ...
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 ...
Wheat in the rice-wheat cropping system of the Punjab: A synthesis of On-farm research results 1984-1988
(CIMMYT; PARC, 1989)
This report presents the results of five years of on-farm studies on wheat production in the rice-wheat zone of the Punjab. The work was started in 1983-84 with an informal diagnostic survey and a formal survey at harvest ...
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 ...
Wheat in the rice-based farming system of the Punjab: implications for research and extension
(CIMMYT; NARC, 1984)
The planting of wheat after rice is a major cropping pattern in the Punjab, occupying 0.5 million ha. in the Districts of Sheikhupura and Gujranwala alone. In this irrigated area, however, wheat yields remain low and ...
