The sustainability of the rice–wheat system in the Indo-Gangetic Plains (IGP) is at risk owing to higher water requirement of the rice crop (Hobbs and Gupta, ).In addition, the conventional production practices resulted in high cultivation cost and inefficient input by: Water Productivity in Agriculture by Jacob Kijne,available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide.

Abstract. One of the major cropping systems of South Asia is rice-wheat grown on million hectares in the Indo-Gangetic Plains (IGP). It is a major system for food security in the region and provides livelihoods and income to millions of farmers and by: 5.

Rice and wheat crops have been grown in South Asia (India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, and Bhutan) and China for more than years. The rice–wheat (RW) cropping system, that is, growing these crops in a sequence in an annual rotation, has been developed through the introduction of rice in the traditional wheat-growing areas and vice versa (Paroda et al.,Tran and Marathee, ).Cited by: Changing Current Scenario of Rice-Wheat System in Indo-Gangetic Plain Region of India Avadhesh Kumar Koshal Project Directorate for Farming Systems Research, Meerut Abstract- The Indian Green revolution region “Indo Gangetic Plain” occupies nearly 15% of the total geographical area of the Size: KB.

The rice–wheat production system of the Indo-Gangetic Plains (IGP) of India has registered only sluggish productivity growth during the past two decades (GoI ). Degradation of the natural resource-base resulting from inappropriate land and input use is widely.
