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
Cost and effectiveness of in-season strategies for coping with weather variability in Pakistan's agriculture
Crops are vulnerable to weather hazards throughout the growth season, with periods of heightened risk described as critical moments. Farmers have a number of ex-ante and in-season options for coping
Forage Development through Farmer Participatory Research for the Sustainability of Smallholder Dairy Farmers
TLDR
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,
