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 ...
Proceedings of the Fourth Asian Regional Maize Workshop
(CIMMYT; PARC, 1990)
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Direct seeded rice technology in Western indo-gangetic plains of India: CSISA experiences
