Rainfed agriculture : unlocking the potential by S. P Wani( )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rainfed agriculture plays, and will continue to play, an important role in global food production as 80% of agriculture is rainfed and contributes about 58% to the global food basket. In addition rainfed areas are also the hot-spots of poverty, malnutrition, water scarcity, severe land degradation, and poor physical and financial infrastructure. In this book issues of rainfed agriculture were analysed in depth by a group of specialized institutions. The major finding of presented in this book that rainfed agriculture for food security is that the vast untapped potential of rainfed agriculture needs to be tapped as the current farmers’ crop yields are lower by two- to fivefold than the potential, based on the clear documented evidence. The book is organized into 14 chapters addressing the issues, starting with the past trends and future prospects, followed by zooming in on the global hotspots of rainfed agriculture, water resource implications of upgrading rainfed agriculture, tectonics–climate-linked natural soil degradation and its impact on rainfed agriculture, determinants of crop growth and yield in a changing climate, yield gap analysis, ‘can rainfed agriculture feed the world?’ scenario analysis, crop water productivity enhancement through genetic enhancement, water harvesting and supplemental irrigation in arid and SAT areas, integrated farm management practices, challenges of adoption and adaptation in smallholder agriculture and scaling-out community watershed management benefits in rainfed areas

Plant adaptation and crop improvement by M Cooper( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book has been developed from a series of papers presented at an international workshop held at ICRISAT Asia Center, Hyderabad, India, 28 November to 2 December 1994. The book contains chapters which consider; (i) theoretical and applied aspects of analysing plant adaptation in multi-environment experiments, (ii) how information on plant adaptation can be used in plant breeding programs, (iii) selection for plant adaptation, (iv) Genotype by Environment (GxE) interactions in plant breeding, (v) methodologies for interpreting the causes of GxE interactions, (vi) case studies on how to accommodate the effects of GxE interactions, (vii) research strategies for understanding GxE interactions and differences in plant adaptation, and other topics related to crop improvement." "There is a particular focus on the opportunities for increasing the efficiency of crop improvement by understanding the basis of variation for plant adaptation in agricultural production systems. Crop improvement strategies based on combinations of the statistical modelling methodologies used by plant breeders and the crop modelling methodologies used by crop physiologists/agronomists are developed and case studies discussed. The book captures much of the experience of scientists from around the world (e.g. in Australia and centres such as IRRI, ICRISAT and CIMMYT) who have worked on the challenging problem of achieving crop improvement in variable crop production systems. It represents a major synthesis for workers in plant breeding, crop physiology and agronomy."--Jacket

Crop residues in sustainable mixed crop/livestock farming systems by C., ed Renard( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides a multidisciplinary perspective on crop residues, bringing together crop, animal and social scientists from six continents. It has been developed from papers presented at a workshop held in April 1996 at ICRISAT Asia Center, as part of the Systemwide Livestock Program of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) convened by the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI), based in Africa. It will appeal to a wide readership in disciplines as diverse as agronomy, soil science, plant breeding, animal nutrition and socio-economics."--BOOK JACKET
