The first occurrence of wheat blast in Bangladesh was confirmed in wheat (Triticum aestivum) fields in February 2016 and re-occurred in the subsequent years. This study explores the potential of alternative use of current ...
Research for marginal environments: Are we underinvested?
Evidence is presented to show that adoption of modern wheat varieties in rainfed marginal environments of the developing world has lagged substantially compared to adoption in favoured well-watered areas. Possible reasons ...
A joint-product analysis of the adoption of modern cereal varieties in developing countries
Semi-dwarf wheat varieties have been slow to diffuse in some regions despite their superior grain yield. This paper analyses varietal differences in yields of the joint products of grain and straw, the decision to adopt ...
