Reducing global warming potential through sustainable intensification of Basmati rice-wheat systems in India
This study examines the effects of tillage, residue management and cropping system intensification through the inclusion of green gram on the performance of the rice-wheat (RW) system in NW India. We hypothesized that zero ...
Tillage and rice straw management affect soil enzyme activities and chemical properties after three years of conservation agriculture based rice-wheat system in north-western India
(SCIENCEDOMAIN international, 2017)
Aims: To evaluate the effects of rice establishment, tillage and rice straw management on changes in soil enzyme activities and chemical properties in soil after three cycles of continuous rice-wheat system. Study Design: ...
Maize research, development, and seed production in India : contributions of the public and private sectors
This paper assesses the relative strengths and weaknesses of India's public and private maize seed industries and examines future options for maize seed industry policies. By 1992, nearly as many maize researchers worked ...
Predicting yield and stability analysis of wheat under different crop management systems across agro-ecosystems in India
(Scientific Research Publishing Inc., 2017)
The objectives of the study were as follows: 1) to evaluate the GxExM for wheat genotypes; 2) to predict yield performance and identify high stable wheat genotypes in different management practices; and 3) to make ...
On-farm economic and environmental impact of zero-tillage wheat: a case of North-West India
(Cambridge University Press, 2015)
Conducting farmers participatory field trials at 40 sites for 3 consecutive years in four rice-wheat system dominated districts of Haryana state of India, this paper tested the hypothesis that zero tillage (ZT) based crop ...
Mechanized Transplanting of Rice (Oryza sativa L.) in Nonpuddled and No-Till Conditions in the Rice-Wheat Cropping System in Haryana, India
(Scientific Research Publishing, 2013)
The common practice of establishing rice in the rice-wheat system in India is manual transplanting of seedlings in the puddled soil. Besides being costly, cumbersome, and time consuming, puddling results in degradation of ...
