1. This study is a prelimary attempt to measure the current US yield potential of selected crops in terms of calories and protein. The primary purpose was to illustrate an investigation approach that would be adaptable to developing countries.
  2. Abstract, Academic Journals, 2018 This paper reviews the impact of soil and water conservation (SWC) measures on crop yield, soil properties, water resources and carbon sequestration. Land degradation due to soil erosion in Ethiopia is too severe which affects the livelihood of a community and...
  3. Abstract, Science Direct, 2013 Yield gap analysis, which evaluates magnitude and variability of difference between crop yield potential (Yp) or water limited yield potential (Yw) and actual farm yields, provides a measure of untapped food production capacity. Reliable location-specific estimates...
  4. Access Agriculture Training Video Row planting is very advantageous. When you sow sesame seeds in a row, you can thin the plants very well. When you thin the plants, the branches will multiply. You can count up to 20 pods on each branch, which is much more than broadcast sowing. When the plants...
  5. This symposium offered a unique opportunity for crop physiologist working on different crops to meet and discuss their problems.
  6. In this report, the discussions concern how we can continue to move up the yield-time curve. This publication results from a symposium held at the American Society of Agronomy and Soil Science Society of America Annual Meetings in 1978. At the symposium outstanding scientists discussed the...
  7. 1/11/2003 This publication reports on research on how alley cropping between tree barriers compared to the more traditional conservation barriers used in Haiti in terms of long-term crop yields. 40 pages, illustrated, photos 2 copies
  8. Based chiefly on his own research results, the author deals with the maximizing of rice yields by creating "ideal rice plants" instead of improving soil conditions as done by other researchers.
  9. AccessAgriculture Training Video En el espacio amplio entre la doble hilera de piña, se puede producir frijoles o maní (cacahuate) durante el primer año, lo cual mejora el suelo. Muchos agricultores cortan todos los árboles para establecer sus piñales. Pero se equivocan porque la piña crece mejor...
  10. Access Agriculture Training Video Yields are much higher when rice is transplanted. Compared to broadcasting, yields are two or three times higher. So why not watch this video and find out how and why. This video is part of the Rice Advice DVD. Available languages: Ateso Burmese Chichewa /...
