Sustainability and economic viability of cereals grown under alternative treatments of water-harvesting in highland Balochistan, Pakistan



Sustainability and economic viability of cereals grown under alternative treatments of water-harvesting in highland Balochistan, Pakistan



Journal of Sustainable Agriculture 8(1): 47-59



Rainfed crop production in highland Baluchistan, Pakistan, is a limited and risky practice. To ascertain the sustainability and economic viability of wheat and barley cultivation under three different water-harvesting treatments, intertemporal and interspatial total factor productivity (TFP) indices respectively were used. Six seasons of wheat data (1986/87-1991/92) and four seasons of barley data (1988/89-1991/92) from trials in farmers' fields in the Quetta valley were used in the study.
