Climate smart agriculture, farm household typologies and food security An ex-ante assessment from Eastern India
(Elsevier Masson, 2018)
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Nutrient management in wheat: current scenario, improved strategies and future research needs in India
Wheat (Triticum aestivum L) is the second most important staple food and meets about 61% of the protein requirement of the India. The introduction of new high yielding varieties coupled with chemical fertilizer use and ...
Integrated nutrient management in Quality Protein Maize (Zea mays) planted in rotation with wheat (Triticum aestivum): Effect on productivity and nutrient use efficiency under different agro-ecological conditions
Field experiments were conducted during two consecutive years 2007 and 2008 at seven locations, viz. Ambikapur, Bahraich, Banswara, Chhindwara, Ranchi, Udaipur and Varanasi of different agro-ecologies to evaluate the effect ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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. ...
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 ...
