  Higher crop prices, prompted in part by rising demand, have increased costs for urban consumers, especially those in poorer countries. However, higher crop prices will also provide farmers with the economic incentive to invest in farming methods and technologies that improve crop yields (von Braun, ; Gallagher, ).Raising corn yields in the 10 largest, below average, corn-producing Cited by: Crop Production. The book focus on challenges, progress and prospects of crop production. It comprises of vast array of topics including latest agronomics practices for different crops to enhance productivity, mitigate the challenges imposed by climate change, improve water use efficiency, factors controlling dormancy, optimum use of fertilizers etc. The association of high WP values with high yields has important implications on the crop management for achieving efficient use of water resources in water scarce areas (Oweis et al., ).The nature of yield versus irrigation water (IR) or ET, and irrigation water productivity (IWP) or WP versus IR or ET (Fig. 1, Fig. 2) curves clarify the importance of attaining relatively higher yields Cited by: PDF | On , Dr. Md.

  The conservation of field crop like maize will require a need based protective structure especially during rainy season with temperature and humidity control with special care of irrigation so as. This comprehensive text emphasizes the general principles of crop production as a science, an art, and a business whose impact on society is inestimable. The book is suitable for use in courses covering crop production at either the introductory or intermediate levels of study and is an invaluable reference for students and professionals by: Crop Production. Finding solutions to complex agricultural issues by examining crop production methods. The crop production group evaluates agricultural practices and systems concerning crop yield, profit, environmental and ecological consequences with the goal of identifying best practices for local and international growers to produce more with less. 1. Introduction. Land degradation and low agricultural productivity are severe problems in Uganda. Although Uganda's soils were once considered to be among the most fertile in the tropics (Chenery, ), problems of soil nutrient depletion, erosion, and other manifestations of land degradation appear to be rate of soil nutrient depletion is among the highest in sub-Saharan Cited by:

Stoneville, MS As a result, it is not possible to increase crop production by using more chemical fertilizers and pesticides in the future. On the one hand, the world population is increasing day by day, on the other hand the limits of agricultural land have been reached, and it is clear that yield increases still need to Cited by: 1. The most immediate potential benefits of introducing genetically modified crops include _____. I) creating crops that can grow on land previously unsuitable for agriculture II) creating crops with better potential for biofuel production III) creating crops with better nutritional attributes IV) increasing crop yield. NEW—Significantly expanded content, with 12 new chapters—Provides crop-sepcific information for 10 selected field crops and essential coverage of latest developments. Makes text suitable for use in preparing for the Crop Certification exams. Allows students to undestand the distinct techniques and technology associated with production of each : On-line Supplement.
