This article provides an economic perspective of the effect of moisture conservation through application of gypsum on wheat yield in rainfed area of Pothwar in Pakistan. Most of the experiments and studies lack proper method of evaluating the agricultural technologies on economic parameters. Hence interventions resulting in significant improvement in yield are not adopted because these do not fulfill the economic rational of the target end users. Effect of gypsum on moisture conservation for…

The Impact of Gypsum Application on Groundnut Yield in Rainfed Pothwar: An Economic Perspective

This study presents an economic analysis of experimental on-farm data on the yield effect of gypsum on groundnut production in Pakistan’s Pothwar region. The data indicates that groundnut pod yield

Promoting Adoption of Water Conservation; Soil Fertility and Health Improving Technologies through Agricultural Service Provision in Pakistan

Agricultural service providers (Agric. SPs) play an essential role in the adoption of promising agricultural technologies by small and medium-sized farms. Similarly, agricultural service provision

Forage Development through Farmer Participatory Research for the Sustainability of Smallholder Dairy Farmers

VBFSE is a potentially viable, alternative seed supply system where formal seed supply is a limiting factor for smallholder dairy farmers and can result in the identification of the better varieties, leading to increased forage yield and quality.

Effect of Different Types of Mulches on Grain Yield and Yield Components of Wheat (Triticum Aestivum) under Rainfed Condition

The research experiment was carried out at the research area of Soil and Water Conservation Research Institute, Chakwal, Pakistan to estimate the effects of different types of mulches on the growth,
