The impact of conservation tillage on the productivity and stability of maize cropping systems: a case study in Western Mexico
This paper examines the economics of introducing conservation tillage into existing maize cropping systems in the state of Jalisco, in the western part of Mexico. A stochastic cost-benefit analysis (SCBA) of introducing ...
Long-term consequences of tillage, residue management, and crop rotation on selected soil micro-flora groups in the subtropical highlands
Densely populated and intensively cropped, the subtropical highlands of the world have agricultural sustainability problems resulting from soil erosion and fertility decline. In 1991, the International Maize andWheat ...
The effects of urea fertilisation and genotype on yield, nitrogen use efficiency, 15N and 13C in wheat
New methodologies to assess nitrogen use efficiency (NUE) in field crops could help in the characterisation of large numbers of genotypes and growing conditions. The effects of chemical nitrogen fertilisation on yield: ...
Cereal cyst nematodes: status, research and outlook
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 ...
Sustainability of the rice-wheat cropping system: issues, constraints, and remedial options
The rice-wheat cropping system of the Indo-Gangetic Plains (IGP) has contributed tremendously to food security of the region. However, of late there has been a significant slowdown in yield growth rate of this system and ...
