collaboration with scientists of the Rice-Wheat Consortium. System characterization Production environments The basic characterization of rice-wheat systems was done at the district level. Based on second-ary data, two broad categories of rice-wheat systems in the Indo-Gangetic Plains are defined: 1. Favorable rice-wheat environment, consti-. Predominant cropping system in India is the Rice-wheat cropping system as both rice and wheat are main staple food for the people of the country. crop varieties and modern technology. Rice and wheat feed more than billion people living in South Asia and the People's Republic of China. The rice-wheat cropping system is the major food production system in the Indo-Gangetic Plains of Bangladesh, India, Nepal, and Pakistan. Chapters in Parts three and four then examine the design of different aquaculture production systems, including offshore technologies, tank-based recirculating systems and ponds, and key environmental issues, such as the prediction and assessment of the impact of aquaculture. Concluding chapters focus on farming new species.

Over four-fifths of the growth in production was due to the increase in yields, made possible through gradual replacement of traditional varieties with modern cultivars developed in rice research stations, supported by public investment for expansion of irrigation infrastructure, extension system and supply of credit facilities (Barker and. technologies and their adoption was to increase production, productivity and farm incomes. Over many decades, policies for agriculture, trade, research and development, education, training and advice have been strong influences on the choice of technology, the level of agricultural production .   Modern Farming Methods. Today, let us talk about some of the modern farming methods and technologies which are the future food production methods.. Agriculture in India is still a traditional procedure. But when you compare with the other foreign countries, they call it as Modern Agriculture. Production technology is one of the key branches of mechanical engineering. With increase in the demand of different products, production technology also changed proportionally. Having such a great advancement in the production of products, there is a significant reduction of human efforts and also production time is reduced by one-fourth.

The rice-wheat cropping pattern of South Asia has seen a phenomenal growth in area, production and yield in the last two decades. This cropping system encompasses the four countries of Bangladesh.

As the rice production area either stabilizes or declines, and there is a wide gap between projected demand and current level of production, vertical growth in production through hybrid rice is a practically feasible and adoptable technology.   Scientists set out to determine the best combination of practices and found that layering of climate smart agriculture practices improved rice-wheat system productivity from 6 to 19 percent depending on techniques used. Layering also led to savings of more than 20 percent irrigation water. Global warming potential was reduced by 40 percent.
