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. ...
Economics of wheat production in Bangladesh
This paper reports the results of a study undertaken to assess the economics of wheat production in Bangladesh, In financial terms, bore (winter) rice is the most profitable crop in irrigated zones, but wheat often generates ...
Has the green revolution been sustained? The quantitative impact of the seed-fertilizer revolution in Pakistan revisited
Quantitative impacts of the Green Revolution on food production in the Pakistan Punjab are reviewed and the effects of different technologies on wheat yields over the past two decades decomposed. New quantitative evidence ...
Identification of genomic associations for adult plant resistance in the background of popular South Asian wheat cultivar, PBW343
(Frontiers Media, 2016)
Rusts, a fungal disease as old as its host plant wheat, has caused havoc for over 8000 years. As the rust pathogens can evolve into new virulent races which quickly defeat the resistance that primarily rely on race ...
Wheat rusts and the costs of genetic diversity in the Punjab of Pakistan
The theory of impure public goods is used to demonstrate why farmers may nor grow wheat cultivars with the socially desirable level of rust resistance. First, they may grow cultivars that are high yielding though susceptible ...
