Cover for The right rice in the right place: systematic exchange and farmer-based evaluation of rice germplasm for salt-affected areas.

Traditional approaches for introducing improved rice varieties to farmers have demonstrated significant impact in favourable ecosystems in Asia, but with limited success in unfavourable ecosystems, as in saltaffected areas. Developing rice varieties with wider adaptation and broader tolerance of...

Cover for Designing resilient rice varieties for coastal deltas using modern breeding tools.

Rice production in most areas of coastal deltas is affected adversely by numerous abiotic stresses, including salinity and other soil-related problems, submergence, stagnant flooding and drought. These stresses affect poor farmers disproportionately. We identify sources of tolerance of these...

Cover for Assessing needs, constraints and livelihood opportunities in coastal saline environments: a case in Orissa, India.

The coastal saline ecosystem in Orissa State, eastern India extends from the shore of the Bay of Bengal to about 15 km inland. Salinity occurs because of the intrusion of seawater during high tides through surface channels, creeks and rivers, particularly during the dry season, but decreases with...

Cover for Rice varieties and cultural management practices for high and sustained productivity in the coastal wetlands of southern Bangladesh.

The importance of including farmers in targeted breeding and participatory variety selection (PVS) to ensure the adoption of high-yielding varieties was demonstrated in the coastal wetlands of the Ganges-Brahamputra Delta of southern Bangladesh. Five sites were selected for conducting 'mother and...

Cover for Improving rice productivity in the coastal saline soils of the Mahanadi Delta of India through integrated nutrient management.

The coastal saline belt of the Mahanadi Delta in Orissa, India, is mostly monocropped with rainfed rice during the wet season (WS). In the dry season (DS), a small area is planted to rice using harvested rainwater. Currently, yields are low; however, integrated nutrient management combined with...

Cover for Crop diversification for improving water productivity and rural livelihoods in coastal saline soils of the Mahanadi Delta, India.

Coastal saline areas are normally monocropped with rice grown during the wet season. On-farm trials were conducted in Ersama block of Jagatsinghpur district, Orissa, India, during 2005-2006 to evaluate the performance of selected non-rice crops in the coastal saline ecosystem during the dry season. ...
