Late sowing of wheat by seed priming

RICE-wheat production systems occupy 2.2 million hectares of land in the country. Irrigated rice-wheat systems have remained the major source of the marketed surplus grain for feeding the growing population.

Radish cultivation technology

RADISH (Raphanus sativus) belongs to the Cruciferae (Brassicaceae) or the mustard family. The plant is widely adaptable and takes a short period from sowing to maturity. It has been cultivated throughout the world since long.

Improved method for raising rice nursery

RICE is grown here under diverse climatic and edaphic conditions. Basmati predominates in traditional rice tracts of Punjab. Temperate Japonica rice is grown in Swat at high altitude in the mountainous valleys. IRRI type long grain heat-tolerant variety of tropical rice is grown in the south of NWFP, Sindh and Balochistan.

Geographic information system in reshaping agriculture

THE geographical information system (GIS), a digital mapping system with computer. It helps manage agriculture by storing, retrieving, manipulating, analysing and displaying information through maps. Its key components are computer system, geospatial data and users.

Use of ‘leaf colour chart’ in nitrogen management

THE growth of a plant depends on the availability of sunlight, water and various chemical elements. About 16 elements are recognized as essential in rice nutrition: carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium, sulphur, iron, manganese, copper, boron, zinc, molybdenum and chloride.
