Wheat in the rice-wheat cropping system of the Punjab: A synthesis of On-farm research results 1984-1988
(CIMMYT; PARC, 1989)
This report presents the results of five years of on-farm studies on wheat production in the rice-wheat zone of the Punjab. The work was started in 1983-84 with an informal diagnostic survey and a formal survey at harvest ...
Wheat in the rice-based farming system of the Punjab: implications for research and extension
(CIMMYT; NARC, 1984)
The planting of wheat after rice is a major cropping pattern in the Punjab, occupying 0.5 million ha. in the Districts of Sheikhupura and Gujranwala alone. In this irrigated area, however, wheat yields remain low and ...
Comparative advantage and policy incentives for wheat production in Ecuador
During the last decade wheat production in Ecuador has decreased sharply at the same time that consumption has been increasing rapidly. As a result wheat imports have grown at 12 percent annually from 1970 to 1982 and ...
Comparative advantage and policy incentives for wheat production in rainfed and irrigated areas of Mexico
Increasing demand for wheat products and Mexico's trade and financial situation are placing pressure on expanding domestic wheat production. As expansion in irrigated areas will be limited to yield increases unless wheat ...
Ventajas comparativas y política agrícola para la producción de trigo en Ecuador
This study examines three interrelated subjects: the decrease of wheat production and increasing wheat imports in Ecuador, the feasibility of wheat production in this country from the point of view of resource use efficiency, ...
Ventaja comparativa y politicas agrarias de la produccion de trigo en zonas irrigadas y de secano en Mexico
El trigo se ha convertido en un cultivo alimentario cada vez más importante en México a medida que consumidores con mayores ingresos, en particular consumidores urbanos, han sustituido los productos del maíz por los del ...
The increasing role of wheat consumption and imports in the developing world

New wheat varieties and the small farmer
The distribution of the benefits of new agricultural technologies is the subject of continuing controversy, especially following the widespread adoption of new wheat and rice varieties in developing countries over the last ...
Wheat in the cotton-wheat farming systems of the punjab: implications for research and extension
(PARC; CIMMYT, 1986)
The cotton-wheat area constitutes the most important cropping system in Pakistan. Taking those districts in which cotton is grown on at least half of the Kharif irrigated area, 2.2 million ha of wheat are grown in the ...
Increasing wheat productivity in the context of Pakistan's irrigated cropping systems: A view from the farmers' field
(PARC; CIMMYT, 1986)
Over 85 percent of wheat area in Pakistan is now sown to high yielding varieties and the national average fertilizer application for wheat is nearly 90kg/ha of nutrients. Further increases in wheat yields will come about ...
