      As discussed above, wheat is the dominant cereal crop but continuous wheat systems are becoming less common. Fixed rotations are common in the more traditional areas around the Mediterranean basin, but more flexible cropping sequences driven by fluctuations in the prices of wheat and other products are likely to be found in other areas.   Green revolution’s impact on wheat production in Pakistan Green revolution was introduce world wide and it had great impact on the productivity of agriculture products. Pakistan also took some benefits from this technology. Regarding the wheat production, before the green revolution the formers uses the old pattern of cultivation. After using.

      was used to achieve the desired objective. The impact of climate change on wheat productivity was analyzed along with some economic incentives. The results of the analysis have shown that one degree centigrade increase in mean minimum temperature at sowing stage will increase wheat productivity by kg ha At. 8. Total Factor Productivity of Rice-Wheat Cropping Systems in India - The Role of Legumes P Kumar1, P K Joshi 2, C Johansen2, and M Asokan Abstract During the past three decades, the rice-wheat cropping systems (RWCS) in India significantly contributed to enhancing food grain production and achieving food self-sufficiency and food security.

      of high yielding varieties and mechanization of both crops. The productivity of these system are higher because the agro climatic conditions i.e. productive alluvial soil, maximum irrigated land, sub tropical climate is most favorable to rice and wheat crops in comparison to other Size: KB.   The pace of yield increase per hectare during past twenty years has been awfully poor rather frustrating since to The population growth however, over whelmed the increase in yield per unit area therefore; the enlarged demand of wheat consumption was met by bringing more area under crop. Which certainly is not a good omen.

National Agricultural Research Center (NARC), Islamabad (PARC/CIMMYT, Paper ) Google ScholarCited by: 2. Major increase in wheat production stemmed from irrigated farming systems of Pakistan.

This study was designed to investigate the rol e of farmers’ management. Crop and Water Productivity of the Pakistan Wheat and Rice Systems February 4 Over the past few years, Pakistan has experienced drier-than-average climatic conditions.

While agriculture plays a vital role in overall performance of the economy of Pakistan, its crop sub-sector contributes the major portion to total value added in the sector.

Wheat constitutes the most important crop that contributed percent towards value added in agriculture and accounted for percent of the total cropped area in the country during [Pakistan.

and currently almost all irrigated wheat is conventionally. This paper has examined the wheat productivity in different cropping systems such as Cotton-wheat, Rice-Wheat and mixed cropping systems of Sindh.

Results indicate that in the case of mixed cropping zone, wheat yield increases as ploughing, seed and plant : Mansoor Ahmed Koondhar, Lingling Qiu, Habibullah Magsi, Abbas Ali Chandio, Ge He.

In irrigated areas, wheat is planted after cotton, rice and sugarcane. In rainfed areas wheat is grown in sequence with maize, sorghum, pearl millet and after fallow especially in low rainfall zone.

In the Punjab region of India and Pakistan, as well as North China, irrigation has been a major contributor to increased grain output. wheat improvement and system research in more than countries across the world. The center develops and applies new science to increase food security, improves the productivity and profitability of maize and wheat farming systems while sustaining natural resources.

The center employs a large number of internationally recruited. The extensive irrigated rice-wheat cropping system in South Asia and China provides a clear example of increasing wheat yields over the past years, increasing fertilizer use.

wheat crop as compared to their counterparts in other selected cropping zones. These results suggested that farmers can increase wheat productivity by increasing the use of factor inputs; however, poverty may be a constraint on realizing these gains.

Thus, wheat production can beFile Size: KB. In bed planting systems, wheat or other crops are planted on raised beds. This practice has increased dramatically in the last decade or so in the high yielding, irrigated wheat-growing area of northwestern Mexico (Meisner, ; K.

Sayre, ). Rice and wheat crops have been grown in South Asia (India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, and Bhutan) and China for more than years. The rice–wheat (RW) cropping system, that is, growing these crops in a sequence in an annual rotation, has been developed through the introduction of rice in the traditional wheat-growing areas and vice versa (Paroda et al.,Tran and Marathee, ).Cited by: Consequently, the productivity of the system remains far below the potential yield levels of modern cultivars.

The rice-wheat system, one of the major cropping systems of the South Asia and parts of East Asia, requires special management. increasing wheat production by improvement in moisture availability through better conservation of rain water or investment in water sources. The inefficiency in wheat production was due to sowing of poor quality crop produce as seed year after year and large operational farm size in Rabi season.

On the other hand, tractor ownership was a technical inefficiency decreasing. The Past and Future Changes in Climate of the Rice-Wheat Cropping Zone in Punjab, Pakistan Vol. 13 12 Rice in the rice-wheat system is normally sown in late May or June and harvested in October which continues through November.

Wheat is best planted in mid-November and late varieties continue to be sown late in December or even Size: 1MB. Wheat crop demands an urgent need to accelerate its production in Pakistan either by increasing the area under cultivation or by enhancing the productivity per unit area through the adoptions of improved production technology.

Wheat crop is grown in large irrigated and rainfed areas of the country. Wheat, rice, maize, sorghum and millets constitute the predominant basis of human nutrition worldwide and require a major research effort to increase their productivity and sustainability in the face of high food prices, climatic changes and natural resource depletion.

Increasing and improving stakeholder participation in experimentation and fine-tuning of the technology will be a key to success.

Introduction The rice–wheat (RW) cropping system is found on million ha in south Asia and is one of the most important cropping patterns.wheat crop is losing comparative advantage in the international market.

Therefore, emphasis on wheat productivity is imperative to secure the food security of small and marginal farmers. FOOD SECURITY The food security of a country indicates access to food for all and its timely availability.
