Saving of water and labor in a rice-wheat system with no-tillage and direct seeding technologies
Conventional tillage and crop establishment methods such as puddled transplanting in the rice–wheat (Oryza sativa L.–Triticum aestivum L.) system in the Indo-Gangetic Plains (IGP) require a large amount of water ...
Comparative analyses of spot blotch and tan spot epidemics on wheat under optimum and late sowing period in South Asia
In South Asia, foliar blight of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) is a disease complex caused by Cochliobolus sativus (the spot blotch pathogen) and Pyrenophora tritici-repentis (the tan spot pathogen) which can reduce yields ...
Productivity and sustainability of the rice-wheat cropping system in the indo-gangetic plains of the Indian subcontinent: Problems, opportunities, and strategies
Rice and wheat are the staple foods for almost the entire Asian population and therefore they occupy a premium position among all food commodities. The era of the Green Revolution started during the early 1970s with wheat ...
Performance of biofortified spring wheat genotypes in target environments for grain zinc and iron concentrations
Genetic biofortification to improve zinc (Zn) and iron (Fe) concentrations in bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) could reduce micronutrient malnutrition-related problems in the developing world. A breeding program on wheat ...
A review of resource conserving technologies for sustainable management of the rice-wheat cropping systems of the Indo-Gangetic plains (IGP).
Rice and wheat are the staple food crops occupying nearly 13.5 million hectares of the Indo-Gangetic plains (IGP) of South Asia covering Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and Nepal. These crops contribute more than 80% of the ...
A comparative analysis of rice-wheat systems in Indian Haryana and Pakistan Punjab
Intensive irrigated rice-wheat production systems have converted the north-west Indo-Gangetic Plains into South Asia's cereal basket. Their strategic importance is undermined by a slowdown in productivity growth linked to ...
Soil health and sustainability of the rice-wheat systems of the indo-gangetic plains
(Rice-Wheat Consortium for the Indo-Gangetic Plains; CIMMYT; CABI, 2004)
Comparing water management in rice-wheat production systems in Haryana, India and Punjab, Pakistan
The intensive irrigated rice-wheat systems in the northwest Indo-Gangetic Plains of South Asia are built on a long tradition of canal irrigation and the more recent advent of tubewells. Findings from farm surveys are used ...
