Abstract: "This working paper presents the results of the Pakistan Component of the Rice-Wheat Consortium Project on 'Sustaining the rice-wheat production systems of Asia'. Rice and wheat crops are main sources of human food and substantially contribute to feeding livestock. The advent of the green revolution in the 1960s resulted in a tremendous increase in the production of these two cereal crops and the rice-wheat cropping system emerged as a very important source of food supply in South Asia."
