Minimising the economic and sociological impact of Phalaris minor in rice/wheat ecosystems. Project Completion Summary Sheet.

Abstract

This project addressed the wider economic and sociological impacts of the Phalaris minor epidemic in Haryana, northern India, using four complementary research approaches. [1] a socio-economic audit to assess the contribution which environmental, management and socio-economic factors have upon the population dynamics of P. minor, [2] biological and ecological-based research using field experimentation to design a simulation model of the population dynamics of P. minor, [3] a programme of education and training based upon the audit and modelling studies for Indian scientists and extension officers and [4] an assessment of the genetic variability of P. minor biotypes in relation to ecological/agronomic impact.
