Assessing soil properties and nutrient availability under conservation agriculture practices in a reclaimed sodic soil in cereal-based systems of North-West India
(Taylor & Francis, 2018)
Soil quality degradation associated with resources scarcity is the major concern for the sustainability of conventional rice-wheat system in South Asia. Replacement of conventional management practices with conservation ...
Behaviour of Quality Protein Maize (QPM) genotypes under well irrigated and water stress conditions in subtropical climate
(Consiglio per la Ricerca e la sperimentazione in Agricoltura, Unità di Ricerca per la Maiscoltura, 2012)
Drought or water stress is one of the prime problems affecting production of maize at global level. A major ob¬jective of QPM breeding programs in semi arid tropics or subtropical climatic conditions is to increase genetic ...
Climate change adaptation, greenhouse gas mitigation and economic profitability of conservation agriculture: some examples from cereal systems of Indo-Gangetic plains
Achieving sustainability of the cereal system in the Indo-Gangetic Plains (IGP) of India under progressive climate change and variability necessitates adoption of practices and technologies that increase food production, ...
Soil organic carbon changes after seven years of conservation agriculture in a rice–wheat system of the eastern Indo-Gangetic Plains
Sequestration of soil organic carbon (SOC) is an important strategy to improve soil quality and to mitigate climate change. To investigate changes in SOC under conservation agriculture (CA), we measured SOC concentrations ...
Herbicide options for effective weed management in dry direct-seeded rice under scented rice-wheat rotation of western Indo- Gangetic Plains
Farmers' participatory field trials were conducted at Madhuban, and Taraori, the two participatory experimental sites/locations of the Cereal Systems Initiative for South Asia (CSISA), a collaborative project of IRRI and ...
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. ...

Agricultural policies and investment priorities for managing natural resources, climate change and air pollution: policy brief
(TAAS; CIMMYT; ICAR; CCAFS; World Bank Group, 2018)
The conservation agriculture roadmap for India: policy brief
(ICAR; CIMMYT, 2018)
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 ...
