Productivity and socio-economic impact of system of rice intensification and integrated crop management over conventional methods of rice establishment in eastern Himalayas, India
To evaluate the performance of new rice establishment methods viz., system of rice intensification (SRI) and integrated crop management (ICM), a field study was conducted during 2008–11 in South GaroExpand
Artificial insemination of pigs reared under smallholder production system in northeastern India: success rate, genetic improvement, and monetary benefit
TLDR
The present study clearly demonstrates the feasibility and potential benefit of AI technique to smallholder backyard pig production system in tribal rural areas and how this technology can help in overcoming breeding constraints in smallholderyard pig production for increasing productivity. Expand
Characterization of smallholder pig production system: productive and reproductive performances of local and crossbred pigs in Sikkim Himalayan region
TLDR
The present study was conducted to know the smallholder pig production system in tribal areas of Sikkim State, India and practiced the intensive system of management whereby kitchen wastes along with cooked mixture comprising maize bhusa, mustard oil cake, pseudostem of banana, tuber, stem, and plant leaves were used to feed their animals. Expand
Seaweed extract as organic bio-stimulant improves productivity and quality of rice in eastern Himalayas
TLDR
Foliar application of 10% K or G sap along with 100% RDF is a recommendable option for improving yield and quality of rice and sustaining soil fertility in eastern Himalayas and similar agroecosystems elsewhere. Expand
Assessment of soil organic carbon stocks and fractions under different agroforestry systems in subtropical hill agroecosystems of north-east India
Soil total organic carbon (TOC) is not sensitive enough to measure the short and medium term changes due to land use change practices, and thus meaningful fractions of soil organic carbon (SOC)Expand
Analysis study on potential underutilized edible fruit genetic resources of the foothills track of Eastern Himalayas, India
TLDR
During the course of survey, collection and evaluation of eleven naturally occurring potential wild edible fruit plants, their habitat, distribution, morphological description, quality parameters, utilization potential, constraints and possible strategies like how to increase their population size, productivity, conservation and utilization are discussed. Expand
Evaluation of composition, burn rate and economy beehive charcoal briquettes.
Beehive charcoal briquette has been found to be an excellent source of alternative household fuel for the rural people of North-East India. These briquettes are produced from charcoal and mud. Mud isExpand
Crop diversification, crop and energy productivity under raised and sunken beds: results from a seven-year study in a high rainfall organic production system
TLDR
There was a significant improvement in soil chemical and biological parameters due to continuous organic production under RSB land configuration, indicating potential for organic farming in the subtropical hill ecosystem of India. Expand
ISPRS Archives XXXVIII-8/W3 Workshop Proceedings: Impact of Climate Change on Agriculture 32 CLIMATE CHANGE IN NORTHEAST INDIA: RECENT FACTS AND EVENTS –WORRY FOR AGRICULTURAL MANAGEMENT
The Northeastern Region of India is expected to be highly prone to the consequences to climate change because of its geo-ecological fragility, strategic location vis-à-vis the eastern HimalayanExpand
Land forming and tillage effects on soil properties and productivity of rainfed groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.)–rapeseed (Brassica campestris L.) cropping system in northeastern India
Abstract Soil erosion, low phosphorus fertility, and soil moisture stress during winter season are among major limitations to high crop production and sustainable land management in North EasternExpand
