Improving crop production for food security and improved livelihoods on the East India Plateau. I. Rainfall-related risks with rice and opportunities for improved cropping systems
Rainfed transplanted rice (Oryza sativa) is the staple crop of the East India Plateau (EIP), where it is low yielding and drought-prone despite high annual rainfall (>1200 mm). Although grown traditionally on lowlands associated with drainage lines, population pressure has forced rice onto terraced slopes (medium-uplands) that now comprise >80% of the rice area, and the only rice land for many families. Crop monitoring, soil water measurement and soil water-balance modelling in Pogro watershed...[Show more]
