Climate smart agriculture, farm household typologies and food security An ex-ante assessment from Eastern India
One of the great challenges in agricultural development and sustainable intensification is the assurance of social equity in food security oriented interventions. Development practitioners, researchers, and policy makers ...
Direct dry seeded rice production technology and weed management in rice based systems
In South Asia, rice-based cropping systems account for more than 50% of the total acreage with rice grown in sequence with rice or upland crops like wheat, maize or legumes. In most areas, rice is traditionally grown by ...
Understanding biophysical and socio-economic determinants of maize (Zea mays L.) yield variability in eastern India
(Elsevier; Royal Netherlands Society for Agricultural Sciences, 2014)
The aim of this paper was to investigate the key factors limiting maize (Zea mays L.) productivity in eastern India to develop effective crop and nutrient management strategies to reduce yield gap. A series of farm surveys ...
Predicting yield and stability analysis of wheat under different crop management systems across agro-ecosystems in India
(Scientific Research Publishing Inc., 2017)
The objectives of the study were as follows: 1) to evaluate the GxExM for wheat genotypes; 2) to predict yield performance and identify high stable wheat genotypes in different management practices; and 3) to make ...
Reducing global warming potential through sustainable intensification of Basmati rice-wheat systems in India
This study examines the effects of tillage, residue management and cropping system intensification through the inclusion of green gram on the performance of the rice-wheat (RW) system in NW India. We hypothesized that zero ...
Tillage and rice straw management affect soil enzyme activities and chemical properties after three years of conservation agriculture based rice-wheat system in north-western India
(SCIENCEDOMAIN international, 2017)
Aims: To evaluate the effects of rice establishment, tillage and rice straw management on changes in soil enzyme activities and chemical properties in soil after three cycles of continuous rice-wheat system. Study Design: ...
Book of extended summaries: national dialogue on efficient nutrient management for Improving soil health
(TAAS; ICAR; CIMMYT; IPNI; CSISA; FAI, 2015)
Improving soil health is a national mission and deliberating on such a topical issues through national dialogue is a collective wisdom of the organizers. Our sincere appreciations to the senior management of the organizing ...
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 ...
