Since then the concept of water productivity has formed the cornerstone of IWMI’s research program. ing productivity per unit of water, or “more crop per drop”’ (Annan, ) and in the W orld Water Day repor t ‘ Increasing water pro ductivity.

Due to water shortage, application of saline water for irrigation is an urgent requirement in agriculture. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of NaCl-induced salinity stress on the growth and Crop Per Drop (CPD) of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum var.

Increasing resource use efficiency— “more crop per drop”—is important, but if a large fraction of the “crop” is not beneficially used the net result of gains in production are reduced. These kinds of imperfections not only apply to the use of water and food.

Similar observations can be made regarding other resources and commodities. Efficiency estimation in agricultural systems has centred on a crop-per-drop approach. the authors argue that there is a need for a paradigm shift in the way groundwater is presently perceived.

InMaharashtra made drip irrigation compulsory for sugarcane cultivation. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has also coined a slogan “per drop, more crop” for optimum utilisation of water in agriculture.

It is now the tagline of Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchayee Yojana that aims to develop and expand cultivable land in the country. Supply of ever increasing volumes of water is not a pre-requisite for continued economic growth and food security. Water and food are already delinked in the new heterodox economics of water.

Better practices can ensure “more crop per drop.” 3. Molden D () Water management for agriculture. In: Giordano MA, Rijberman FR, Saleth RM (eds) More crop per drop: revisiting a research paradigm: results and synthesis of IWMI’s Research: – IWA Publishing, London, pp – Google Scholar.

It was not our aim to change the current paradigm “more crop per drop” or to fight with the deficit irrigation paradigm. We rather want to provoke a discussion on this topic and to direct the researchers’ attention to soil water tension, a parameter that can be of great importance and help while deciding on the irrigation schedule.

The classical ecologists have questioned growing of eucalyptus with agriculture crops by accusing it to be depleting ground water. However, thematic studies highlight that on the contrary, NewGen eucalyptus is more efficient in water usage for producing a kg of woody biomass (more crop per drop).

a paradigm shift in deriving livelihood through conventional methods, developmental strategies, conservation practices are required for balanced and sustainable growth of the coastal areas. this book also covers.

Beyond More Crop Per Drop, A document and web site have been produced for the 4th World Water Forum to provide ‘KEY MESSAGES’ which reflect valuable information, insight and opportunity for action within the framework of the water-food-environment nexus.

More crop per drop: How UGA is redefining water sustainability in agriculture “Stefano’s experiment is more or less the first part of my research thesis,” Lacerda said. He has published more than research papers in national and international journals and newsletters.

He also authored/edited more than 25 books published by respected national and international publishers. Water Management for More Crops per Drop in the Coastal Areas. Pages   Tree Crops is a classic of the permaculture movement, probably the main inspiration for the name.

In practice, the book is little more than a suggestion, or an exhortation, to transition to a perennial polyculture system for the US. It's super progressive for its time, of course, but the writing style and amount of information unfortunately are /5(19).

In other words, maximizing the fraction of P becoming beneficial, i.e. productive green-water flow. Great Plains. Using multiple approaches, he is improving water efficiency of agriculture to achieve ‘More Crop Per Drop’.

Using simple water cycle, his research focuses on improving storage of rainfall in the soil profile, utilizing most of the stored water in crop production and reducing water losses from the. Crop insurance can be used as one of the strategies for CRA.

In this context, the recent introduction of Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana (PMFBY) by the central government is a great step forward; There is a need for research that can lead to the development of climate resilient technologies and extension systems to promote these among farmers.

To conclude, the Government’s intent is progressive when it talks about programmes such as ‘More Crop per Drop’, ‘Pradhan Mantra Fasal Bima Yojna’, ‘Direct benefit transfer to farmers.

Water productivity increases (“more crop per drop”) need to include consideration of externalities associated with crop production and water consumption; for example, growth of local economies stemming from production of higher value crops promoted by better-insured water supplies, local food.

Search the world's most comprehensive index of full-text books. My library. Summary: This book reviews the concept, contemporary research efforts and the implementation of Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM).

The IWRM concept was established as an international guiding water management paradigm in the early ies and has become a vital approach to solving the problems associated with the topic of water. Using different approaches, Farina et al. show that feeding colonies food scented with a simple synthetic odorant mixture that mimics sunflower scent enabled the establishment of in-hive odor memories that biased honeybees to the crop.

This procedure increased yields significantly, highlighting the role of olfactory learning within the hive. 'The new edition of Crop Ecology, by Connor, Loomis, and Cassman, retains the strengths of the earlier edition, namely, insightful analysis of the key principles that explain crop resource use and growth, based on extensive use of peer-reviewed data, averaging more than one graph or table per page.

Over the past 20 years, the reactivity of amygdala to emotive stimuli has been explored by emerging neuroimaging techniques in an effort to understand the role of amygdala in the pathophysiology of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). A fear neurocircuitry model, whereby the amygdala is hyperactive due to poor top-down control from the anterior cingulate and ventromedial.

One of the primary goals of water management for agriculture is to increase the amount of crop produced per drop of water. Clear evidence exists of improved transpiration efficiency (yield per unit of transpired water) over time for irrigated crops [Basso and Ritchie, ]. Opportunities for further enhancement largely involve decreasing soil.

and groundwater resources. The quantity of crops and the amount of employment generated in the whole Guadiana basin are already producing ‘more crops and jobs per drop’.

The aim now is to move towards a policy of ‘more cash and nature per drop’, especially in the Upper and Middle Guadiana basin.

1. both leafy crops and cereals respond more to soil fertility K level than to freshly applied fertilizer K [27, 66, 85, 86], all crops respond to current potassium fertilization in years with stress, mostly related to water shortage and site specific diversification of K management [47, 55, 86, 87].
