Direct Seeding of Rice and Weed Management in the Irrigated Rice- Wheat Cropping System of the Indo-Gangetic Plains

Direct Seeding of Rice and Weed Management in the Irrigated Rice- Wheat Cropping System of the Indo-Gangetic Plains

To take stock of the present knowledge on direct seeding of rice, a workshop was organized at Pantnagar. Papers presented in this workshop covered the major aspects of rice production—methods of rice establishment, weeds and weed management in different cropping systems, water management, varieties suited to direct seeding, rice quality, and socioeconomic issues.

Establishing community-based seed systems

Establishing community-based seed systems

The Consortium for Unfavorable Rice Environments (CURE) seeks to develop community-based seed systems (CBSS) in rainfed rice areas as a delivery system for technologies and capacity enhancement strategies on seed health management, crop diversification, crop management options, and other demand--driven interventions. The aim is to increase productivity and enhance livelihoods.
