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 ...
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 ...
Adoption of multiple climate-smart agricultural practices in the Gangetic plains of Bihar, India
(Emerald Group Publishing Ltd, 2018)
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 ...
Potassium Fertilization in Rice-Wheat System across Northern India: Crop Performance and Soil Nutrients
Rice (Oryza sativa L.)-wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cropping in South Asia is under stress due to widespread removal of plant nutrients in excess of their application. We evaluated K, S, and Zn application to rice and wheat ...
Relay planting of wheat in cotton: an innovative technology for enhancing productivity and profitability of wheat in cotton-wheat production system of South Asia
Cotton?wheat (CW) is the second most important cropping system after rice?wheat in South Asia. Sowing of wheat after cotton is usually delayed due to late pickings coupled with time needed for seedbed preparation, resulting ...
Effect of different tillage and seeding methods on energy use efficiency and productivity of wheat in the Indo-Gangetic plains
Conservation agriculture (CA) based crop management technologies specially zero- or minimum-tillage are being rapidly adopted by the farmers in intensively cultivated wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) production systems of South ...
Economics of nitrogen fertiliser application in rice, wheat and maize grown in the indo-gangetic plains
Nitrogen (N) is a key factor for cereal production in India. N is predominantly supplied to the plants through fertiliser application. The average response to applied fertiliser N has been declining steadily over the past ...
Framework, guidelines and governance for designing local adaptation plan of action to mainstream climate smart villages in India
The major challenges being faced by Agriculture globally are degradation of natural resources and increasing frequency of climate change induced risks. In pre-green revolution period, the farmers practiced a more resilient ...
