Save And Grow In Practice Maize, Rice, Wheat: A Guide To Sustainable Cereal Production
PDF File Size: 295 KB | Download   
This new book looks at the application of ‘Save and Grow’ practices and technologies to the production of the world’s key food security crops – maize, rice and wheat. With examples drawn from developing countries around the world, it shows how eco-friendly farming systems are helping smallholder farmers to boost cereal yields, improve their livelihoods, protect the environment and build resilience to climate change. he guide outlines the policies, institutions, technologies and capacity-building needed to upscale lessons learned in national and regional programmes for sustainable intensification. In Asia, many rice farmers raise fish around paddy fields to produce food, control pests, and fertilize their rice crop. Result: lower costs, higher yields and improved household nutrition. From Madagascar, System of Rice Intensification practices have spread to Asia, where they are helping farmers to produce more rice and income using less water, less fertilizer and less seed. Worldwide, wheat farmers grow legumes to improve the health of soil and provide a natural source of nitrogen, which boosts wheat yields. Legumes also break pest and disease cycles and suppress weeds.
