Nepal - Proposed activities for winter season

  1. 1. Planned Activities for Winter Season Central Terai Nepal Hub 2011-2012
  2. 2. Dissemination <ul><li>Laser Land Leveling : Hub districts </li></ul><ul><li>Advancing planting of wheat (Av 20 Nov): ZT, residue retention (20 – 30 cm anchored), medium duration of wheat cultivars, and layered better-bet agronomic messages (e.g. quality seed, balanced fertilizers, water and weed management). </li></ul><ul><li>Generating awareness of the performance benefits of new wheat HYVs . </li></ul><ul><li>Increase cropping intensity (relay mung, cowpea or mung as third crop in R-W system) </li></ul>
  3. 3. Dissemination continued…. <ul><li>Exploiting bottomland fallows with surface seeding technologies </li></ul><ul><li>Utilizing Boro rice in Bara/Parsa to cultivate poorly-drained winter fallows (collaboration with RARS, NARC) </li></ul><ul><li>Maize hybrid screening demonstration cum trial; line sowing w/ ZT multi-crop seeder </li></ul>
  4. 4. Applied research <ul><li>Optimum wheat seed rate with different crop establishment practices (i.e. broadcast, CT-line, ZT-line) + optimum rate for ZT with different planting dates. </li></ul><ul><li>Increasing AE N in ZT wheat with different application methods (timing and irrigation interactions for basal application) </li></ul><ul><li>Evaluating the performance of site-specific tools for nutrient management (GS, Nutrient Expert) </li></ul><ul><li>Dual purpose wheat + berseem exploratory trial </li></ul><ul><li>ZT, bed planting, residue retention, and irrigation management for lentil intensification </li></ul>
  5. 5. Training and Promotional Activities <ul><li>Training events will be organized in various areas: weed management, nutrient & irrigation, use and maintenance of new machineries </li></ul><ul><li>Promotional activities like FFD, TS, FGD will be continued. </li></ul><ul><li>Participation in the fairs, exhibitions and production of leaflets will be continued. </li></ul><ul><li>Agro-dealers, service providers, and women’s production group will be prioritized. </li></ul>
