Abstract Rainfed and irrigated agricultural systems have supported livelihoods in the five Central Asian countries (CAC) for millennia, but concerns for sustainability and efficient use of land andExpand
Simulating the Impact of Climate Change on Rice Phenology and Grain Yield in Irrigated Drylands of Central Asia
Rice is the second major food crop in central Asia. Climate change may greatly affect the rice production in the region. This study quantifies the effects of projected increases in temperature andExpand
Growth and yield of rice (Oryza sativa L.) under resource conservation technologies in the irrigated drylands of Central Asia
Abstract Increasing water shortage and low water productivity in the irrigated drylands of Central Asia are compelling farmers to adopt resource conservation technologies, such as dry seeded,Expand
Combining permanent beds and residue retention with nitrogen fertilization improves crop yields and water productivity in irrigated arid lands under cotton, wheat and maize
Intensive soil tillage and mismanagement of irrigation water and fertilizers are increasing production costs, reducing soil fertility and crop water productivity and threatening the sustainability ofExpand
Introducing Conservation Agriculture on Irrigated Meadow Alluvial Soils (Arenosols) in Khorezm, Uzbekistan
Uzbekistan’s economy depends to a great extent on agriculture, particularly on revenues from irrigated cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) production. Since poor soil fertility and high soil salinity areExpand
Assessing the Economic Viability of Organic Cotton Production in Uzbekistan: A First Look
Cotton in Uzbekistan is produced in rotation with winter wheat and rice according to national quotas. Production methods are unsustainable, economically and ecologically risky, contributing to soilExpand
