Conservation agriculture in maize- and wheat-based systems in the (Sub)tropics: Lessons from adaptation initiatives in South Asia, Mexico, and Southern Africa
Conservation agriculture's underlying principles—minimal soil disturbance, soil cover and crop rotation—are increasingly recognized as essential for sustainable agriculture. This article summarizes three contrasting cases ...
Groundwater management in Bangladesh: an analysis of problems and opportunities
Increased groundwater accessibility resulting from the expansion of deep and shallow tube wells helped Bangladesh attain near self-sufficiency in rice, with national output increasing over 15 million tons in the last two ...
Compendium of deliverables of the conservation agriculture course 2014
This book is the result of the hard work of 5 CIMMYT trainees who work on sustainable practices in India, Ethiopia and Zimbabwe, and participated in the 2014 visiting scientist program ?Conservation agriculture: Laying the ...
Simulation of resource-conserving technologies on productivity, income and greenhouse gas GHG emission in rice-wheat system
The Rice-wheat (RW) cropping system is one of the major agricultural production systems in four Indo-Gangetic Plains (IGP) countries: India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal of South Asia covering about 32% of the total rice ...
Layering precision land leveling and furrow irrigated raised bed planting: Productivity and input use efficiency of irrigated bread wheat in indo-gangetic plains
Stagnating yield and declining input use efficiency in irrigated wheat of the Indo-Gangetic Plain (IGP) coupled with diminishing availability of water for agriculture is a major concern of food security in South Asia. The ...
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. ...
