The second advance estimates of agricultural output released by the government on Friday projected another bumper harvest with foodgrain output pegged at a new record of 250.42 million tonnes durin

Pest control is one of the areas in which population dynamic theory has been successfully applied to solve practical problems. However, the links between population dynamic theory and model construction have been less emphasized in the management and control of weed populations. Most management models of weed population dynamics have emphasized the role of the endogenous process, but the role of exogenous variables such as climate have been ignored in the study of weed populations and their management.

New Delhi: Food inflation turned negative for the first time in nearly six years in late December as prices of vegetables, potato, onion and some cereals fell sharply, prompting analysts to say the

Bhopal : Driven by this year’s record rainfall and increased cultivation area of wheat, pulses and other crops, Madhya Pradesh’s agriculture growth is likely to cross 10% this fiscal.

A field experiment was conducted during 2003-04 and 2004-05 at Research Farm, BHU, Varanasi, U.P. to study the effect of various sources (farm yard manure, vermicompost and poultry manure) and rates of organic manures on yield, quality of produce, soil quality and economics of rice-table-pea-onion cropping sequence.

Both earthworms and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) are important ecosystem engineers co-occurring in temperate grasslands. However, their combined impacts during grassland establishment are poorly understood and have never been studied. We used large mesocosms to study the effects of different functional groups of earthworms (i.e., vertically burrowing anecics vs.

Stagnating yields, negative impact on environment, soil health and farmers' economy were some of the side effects of green revolution and provided fuel to search new and unexploited areas to ensure increased productivity through eco-friendly or evergreen farming.

In a major achievement that may help boost country’s efforts at breaking new grounds in improving yield of pulses, a major source of protein in the Indian diet, a group of scientists from across di

It is well demonstrated that the responses of plants to elevated atmospheric CO2 concentration are species-specific and dependent on environmental conditions. We investigated the responses of a subshrub legume species, Caragana microphylla Lam., to elevated CO2 and nitrogen (N) addition using open-top chambers in a semiarid temperate grassland in northern China for three years.

The Prime Minister’s office (PMO) has directed the agriculture ministry to come out with a time-bound action plan to usher in a green revolution in eastern India, with a special focus on improving
