Assessing the impact of adaptive agricultural research on accelerating technology deployment: The case of zero tillage wheat in India
A critical assumption in the impact assessment of an agricultural R&D effort is whether the effort in question has a substitute ? that is, whether the innovation would also happen under other settings. This paper takes the ...
Impact of zero tillage in India's rice-wheat systems
Can productivity and profitability be enhanced in intensively managed cereal systems while reducing the environmental footprint of production? Assessing sustainable intensification options in the breadbasket of India
In the most productive area of the Indo-Gangetic Plains in Northwest India where high yields of rice and wheat are commonplace, a medium-term cropping system trial was conducted in Haryana State. The goal of the study was ...
Direct seeded rice technology in Western indo-gangetic plains of India: CSISA experiences
(CSISA; IRRI; CIMMYT, 2012)
Factors affecting the adoption of zero tillage wheat in the rice-wheat systems of India and Pakistan
Zero tillage planting of wheat after rice has been the main success in the quest for resource-conserving technologies that can save water, reduce production costs and improve production in the Indo?Gangetic Plains, the ...
Operational manual for multi-crop zero till planter

Multidimensional impact assessment of zero tillage technology on wheat productivity in Haryana
The farmer’s participatory approach proved to be accurate guide for zero tillage technology adoption by farmers within different districts not only in Haryana, India, but also in other major wheat producing states of the ...
Zero tillage impacts in India's rice-wheat systems: A review
To date, the most widely adopted resource conserving technology in the Indo-Gangetic Plains (IGP) of South Asia has been zero-tillage (ZT) wheat after rice, particularly in India. The paper reviews and synthesizes the ...
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 ...
