Relative impacts of tillage, residue management and crop-rotation on soil bacterial communities in a semi-arid agroecosystem
In this study, the effect of limited tillage versus traditional tillage, residue retention versus removal and crop rotation (maize-wheat) versus monoculture (maize) on the bacterial community structure in soils was ...
Combining permanent beds and residue retention with nitrogen fertilization improves crop yields and water productivity in irrigated arid lands under cotton, wheat and maize
Intensive soil tillage and mismanagement of irrigation water and fertilizers are increasing production costs, reducing soil fertility and crop water productivity and threatening the sustainability of crop production systems ...
NIR spectroscopy: An alternative for soil analysis
Advances in laboratory instrumentation and chemometrics provide alternatives to traditional methods of conducting soil chemical analysis. One of these is infrared diffuse reflectance spectroscopy in the near-infrared ...
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 ...
Short-term impacts of tillage and fertilizer treatments on soil and root borne nematodes and maize yield in a fine textured cambisol
(Society of Nematologists, 2018)
tc. Conservation agriculture (CA) based on the principles of minimum soil disturbance, crop residue retention, and crop rotation has been the focus of intensive research in recent years. A study was carried out to determine ...
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 ...
Conservation agriculture in cereal systems of south Asia: Nutrient management perspectives
In past, green revolution has paid dividends through impressive agricultural growth, which helped to keep balance between demand and supply in the past four decades. But, the real challenges have surfaced in the recent ...
