Livestock has been the mainstay of Indian agriculture sector and also a major source of GHGs emissions from the world's largest livestock population. The milching livestock (including lactating dairy cattle, buffalo and goat) constitutes 21.3% of the country's livestock. We present a detailed inventory of GHGs emissions from milching livestock (using the(More)
Recognising importance of horticulture in promoting livelihood and employment opportunity and bringing prosperity to the state, the Govt. of India has extended National Horticulture Technology Mission Programme to Himachal Pradesh. The objective of Mission is to develop horticulture based farming system that is economically viable and ecologically(More)
The paper presents a detailed understanding of nitrogenous fertilizer use in Indian agriculture and estimation of seasonal nitrogen loosses from rice crop in Indo-Gangetic plain region, the 'food bowl' of the Indian sub-continent. An integrated methodology was developed for quantification of different forms of nitrogen losses from rice crop using remote(More)
Bringing green revolution in eastern India (BGREI) is an initiative of Department of Agriculture and Co-operation (DAC) Ministry of Agriculture (MoA), Govt. of India with the aim of increasing crop productivity through improved inputs and package of practices in seven states of eastern India comprising the low productivity zones. The current study aimed at(More)
Hyperspectral leaf reflectance of a plant provides unique information that is characteristic of that plant. The present investigation is a preliminary attempt to assess whether spectra of leaves of mangrove species recorded under field conditions contain adequate spectral information for discerning mangroves at species rank. The paper highlights the(More)
Cropping system level study is not only useful to understand to overall sustainability of agricultural system, but also it helps in generating many important parameters which are useful in climate change impact assessment. Considering its importance, Space Applications Centre, took up a project for mapping and characterizing major cropping systems of(More)
Soil Conservation Service (SCS) and overland flow models have been used for runoff modeling over major land mass of India. Remote sensing derived daily rainfall data (Climate Prediction Centre), high temporal NDVI data (SPOT VGT), DEM (GTOPO30) and soil texture maps were used as input for the runoff modeling. SCS model setup was done in GIS (Arc GIS)(More)
This present study explores the use high-resolution multi-spectral remote sensing data for generating within-field soil variability map as an inputs required for site-specific management of agriculture. The study was conducted for an experimental plot in Central Potato Research Station of Jalandhar, India. Thirty-five soil samples were collected from the(More)
