Impact of climate change on potato using ensemble crop model

 

   

 

 

Fodder Production with improved cultivars

Simulation carried out using WOFOST crop growth model to study the impact of climate change on potato productivity in Madhya Pradesh revealed that potato yield is likely to be impacted negatively in Madhya Pradesh in future climates due to combined effect of CO2  and temperature.

High temperature stress tolerance in tomato

 

Two hundred forty three recombinant inbred lines (RILs) of tomato (Punjab Chhuhara × H-88-78-1) were tested in open field conditions during February to May, 2015. Based on fruit setting percentage (< 20% - highly sensitive, 20-40% - sensitive, 40-60% - moderately tolerant, 60-75% - tolerant and > 75% - highly tolerant), 12 lines were categorized in 5 groups. Out of 243 RILs, genotype PR-168, PR-161-L and PR-193-2 performed better under high temperature condition (day max temp. > 38°C) on the basis of morphological, physiological and fruit quality traits.

Fodder production with high yielding improved cultivars is being promoted in most of the NICRA villages to increase the fodder availability both at household and village level. The less productive grasses are being replaced with improved cultivars, drought tolerant varieties of fodder in NICRA villages to enhance availability of green fodder during lean period and productivity of the animals.
