Learning adaptation to climate change from past climate extremes: evidence from recent climate extremes in Haryana, India
(Emerald Publishing Limited, 2020)
Conservation agriculture-based wheat production system (CAW) can serve as an ex ante measure to minimize loss due to climate risks, especially the extreme rainfall during the wheat production season in India. This study ...
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 ...
Layering precision land leveling and furrow irrigated raised bed planting: Productivity and input use efficiency of irrigated bread wheat in indo-gangetic plains
(Scientific Research Publishing, 2011)
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 ...
Regional dialogue on conservation agriculture on South Asia: proceedings and recommendations
(CIMMYT; APAARI; ICAR, 2011)
South Asia accounts for less than 2% of the world’s total land area and 14 % of the global agricultural land. However, about 94% of the agriculturally suitable area is already under cultivation with almost no scope for ...
Proceedings of the Regional Consultation on improving wheat productivity in Asia; Bangkok (Thailand); 26-27 Apr 2012
(FAO; APAARI; CIMMYT; ICARDA; JIRCAS, 2013)
Wheat is the second largest food security crop in Asia. Recent estimates indicate that world will need around 1090 million tons of wheat by 2050 from its current production level of 680 million tons. To meet this demand, ...
Physical and chemical properties of a sandy loam soil under irrigated rice-wheat sequence in the Indo-Gangetic Plains of South Asia
(OMICS International, 2017)
Resource conservation technologies (RCTs) such as zero tillage (ZT), dry direct seeded rice (DSR) and crop residues as mulch are known to increase productivity and profitability of rice-wheat system (RWS) in South Asia. ...
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 ...
