Role of Intensive Management of Wheat in Poverty Alleviation of NWFP, Pakistan
Abstract/OtherAbstract :
Poverty is the worst problem faced by the masses of Pakistan in general and by the masses of her North West Frontier Province (NWFP) in particular. Wheat is the staple food of the people of NWFP but it is always dependent on Punjab, the neighbouring province, for the wheat supply, because the yields produced in the province are very low. A series of agronomic experiments were conducted at the Agricultural Research Institute, Dera Ismail Khan (DIK) from 1997 to 2000, to formulate a package of production technology for the wheat growers of the province to increase their wheat yields. Various row spacings, fertilizer doses, crop varieties, sowing dates and seed rates were studied during the course of experiments. It was observed that improved varieties seeded at a seed rate of 120 kg ha<sup>-1</SUP> during mid November in narrow row spacing (20 cm) with optimum fertilizer rate (NPK: 120-90-30) produced higher yields. It was concluded that more than three times increase over the provincial mean wheat yield could be achieved by adopting the improved package of production technology.
