Abstract

This chapter quantifies the potential yields and yield gaps between the potential and the actual yields obtained by the farmers for the major rainfed crops grown in the selected countries in South and South East Asia (India, Thailand and Vietnam), SSA and the West Asia and North Africa (WANA) region, where food security is increasingly threatened because of expected increase in population and degradation of natural resources. This analysis is expected to help identify the opportunities and constraints for yield improvement with the implementation of the improved crop production and natural resource management technologies for the rainfed regions.
