Mapping smallholder wheat yields and sowing dates using micro-satellite data
Remote sensing offers a low-cost method for developing spatially continuous crop production statistics across large areas and through time. Nevertheless, it has been difficult to characterize the production of individual ...
On-farm evaluation of short-season sorghum and fertilizer for smallholder farmers in a semi-arid region of Zimbabwe
Three on-farm experiments were conducted during 1984-85, 1985-87 in Siabuwa, Zimbabwe to test 1) earlier maturing food sorghums with pearly white grain and 2) fertilizer application as possible solutions to production ...
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 ...
Using satellite data to identify the causes of and potential solutions for yield gaps in India’s Wheat Belt
(IOP Publishing, 2017)
Food security will be increasingly challenged by climate change, natural resource degradation, and population growth. Wheat yields, in particular, have already stagnated in many regions and will be further affected by ...
