Maize-poultry value chains in India: Implications for Research and Development
Rapid growth of the poultry industry in India has caused an increased demand for maize (Zea mays L.). Poultry feed contains 60-65% of maize and approximately 50% of India's annual maize harvest of 19 million tons is used ...
Adoption and impacts of zero-tillage in the rice-wheat zone of irrigated Haryana, India
(CIMMYT; RWC, 2007)
This study documents the adoption and impacts of zero-tillage (ZT) wheat in the rice-wheat systems of India’s Haryana State primarily drawing on a detailed empirical survey of 400 rice-wheat farmers. Our random stratified ...
Impact of zero tillage in India's rice-wheat systems
Livelihoods and agro-ecological gradients: A meso-level analysis in the Indo-Gangetic Plains, India
Rice-wheat systems in the Indo-Gangetic Plains (IGP) have long exemplified South Asia's agricultural transformation through the Green Revolution. The same systems now also typify the post-Green Revolution stagnation and ...
Crop-livestock interactions along agro-ecological gradients: A meso-level analysis in the Indo-Gangetic Plains, India
Although conceptually simple and often idealized, disentangling crop-livestock interactions typically proves more complex in practice. Part of the complexity arises from their changing nature along agricultural intensification ...
Poverty mapping based on livelihood assets: A meso-level application in the Indo-Gangetic Plains, India
Poverty maps are an increasingly popular mode of visualizing the spatial dimension of poverty. They help guide priority-setting and target poverty-alleviation interventions. The utility of poverty maps can be enhanced by ...
The paradox of limited maize stover use in india's smallholder crop-livestock systems
Cereal residues are an important feed source for ruminants in smallholder crop-livestock systems in the (sub)tropics. In many areas of India maize is a relatively new cash crop where farmers and development agents alike ...
Livelihood assets as a multidimensional inverse proxy for poverty: A district-level analysis of the Indian indo-gangetic plains
The measurement of poverty is important yet problematic and controversial. This study assesses livelihood asset indicators from the sustainable livelihood approach as a multidimensional inverse proxy for poverty. The study ...
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 ...
