Sustainable agriculture and the international rice-wheat system( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Addressing a topic of major importance to the maintenance of world food supplies, this reference identifies knowledge gaps, defines priorities, and formulates recommendations for the improvement of the rice-wheat farming system. The book reveals new systems of rice intensification and management and illustrates the application of no-till and conservation farming to the rice-wheat system. With contributions from 65 international experts, and case studies from India, Nepal, Pakistan, and Bangladesh, Sustainable Agriculture and the International Rice-Wheat System focuses on seeding equipment and residue management, weed control, water and nutrient efficiency, and integrated pest management
No-tillage seeding in conservation agriculture by C. J Baker( )

This book is a much-expanded and updated edition of a previous volume, published in 1996 as ""No-tillage Seeding: Science and Practice"". The base objective remains to describe, in lay terms, a range of international experiments designed to examine the causes of successes and failures in no-tillage. The book summarizes the advantages and disadvantages of no tillage. It highlights the pros and cons of a range of features and options, without promoting any particular product. Topics added or covered in more detail in the second edition include:· soil carbon and how its retention or sequestration

Increasing wheat yields sustainably through agronomic means by Peter R Hobbs( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Some of the most exciting opportunities for sustainably improving wheat system productivity have been developed through crop management research. We begin by describing the gap between farmers' actual yields and potential yields and reasons for that yield gap. Next, we review a series of factors that influence yields ... [and] provide examples of how agronomic practices can improve the efficiency of each factor and ultimately increase yield in a sustainable manner--Introduction
