Bayesian functional regression as an alternative statistical analysis of high-throughput phenotyping data of modern agriculture
(BioMed Central, 2018)
Background: Modern agriculture uses hyperspectral cameras with hundreds of reflectance data at discrete narrow bands measured in several environments. Recently, Montesinos-López et al. (Plant Methods 13(4):1-23, 2017a. ...
Application of a bias-corrected meta-frontier approach and an endogenous switching regression to analyze the technical efficiency of conservation tillage for wheat in South Asia
(Springer Verlag, 2018)
Conservation tillage (CT) options are among the most rapidly spreading land preparation and crop establishment techniques globally. In South Asia, CT has spread dramatically over the last decade, a result of strong policy ...
Increasing yield stability and input efficiencies with cost-effective mechanization in Nepal
Nepal is at a crossroads of diminishing farm-labor and inadequate investment into farming operations that, among other factors, have stagnated domestic wheat yield. Cultural and economic constraints have hindered the ...
Mexican tropical cream cheese yield using low-fat milk induced by trans-10, cis-12 conjugated linoleic acid : effect of palmitic acid
(Taylor & Francis, 2018)
The trans-10, cis-12 isomer of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) reduces milk fat in dairy cows, causing a lower cheese yield. This could be mitigated by adding palmitic acid (PA) to the diet, as it stimulates fat synthesis ...
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 ...
Unpacking ‘sustainable’ cocoa : do sustainability standards, development projects and policies address producer concerns in Indonesia, Cameroon and Peru?
(Taylor and Francis; Taylor & Francis, 2018)
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 ...
Do mature innovation platforms make a difference in agricultural research for development? a meta-analysis of case studies
(Cambridge University Press; Cambridge University Press, 2018)
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 ...
