A global analysis of alternative tillage and crop establishment practices for economically and environmentally efficient rice production
(Nature Publishing Group, 2017)
Alternative tillage and rice establishment options should aim at less water and labor to produce similar or improved yields compared with traditional puddled-transplanted rice cultivation. The relative performance of these ...
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 ...
Guidelines for dry seeded rice (DSR) in the Eastern gangetic plains of India
(IRRI; CIMMYT, 2013)
Dry seeded rice (DSR) is becoming an attractive option for farmers as it has a much lower labor requirement than manually transplanted rice. Labor for transplanting rice has become scarce and costly because laborers are ...
Operational manual for multi-crop zero till planter
(CIMMYT; CSISA; IRRI; NASC, 2012)
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 ...
Herbicide options for effective weed management in dry directseeded 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 ...
Tillage, residue and nitrogen management effects on methane and nitrous oxide emission from rice–wheat system of Indian Northwest Indo-Gangetic Plains
(Taylor and Francis; European Federation of Associations of Environmental Professionals; European Federation of Engineering Consultancy Associations; Vereniging van Milieuprofessionals, 2015)
Zero-tillage, residue management and precision nutrient management techniques are being promoted in the rice–wheat (RW) production system of Indo-Gangetic Plains (IGPs) to enhance climate change adaptation and increase ...
Adoption of multiple climate-smart agricultural practices in the Gangetic plains of Bihar, India
Purpose: The adoption of climate-smart agricultural practices (CSAPs) is important for sustaining Indian agriculture in the face of climate change. Despite considerable effort by both national and international agricultural ...
Gender and inorganic nitrogen : what are the implications of moving towards a more balanced use of nitrogen fertilizer in the tropics?
(Taylor and Francis; Earthscan, 2017)
For agriculture to play a role in climate change mitigation strategies to reduce emissions from inorganic nitrogen (N) fertilizer through a more balanced and efficient use are necessary. Such strategies should align with ...
