Multiple cropping, or growing of several crops on the same land, is an old practice for crop production in the humid tropics. It is used by subsistence farmers to increase diversity of their product and stability of their annual farm output.

With the rapid increase in a farm population and shortage of new lands for cultivation, however, multiple cropping is considered an excellent strategy for Cited by: Multiple cropping in the humid tropics of Asia. Book: Multiple cropping in the humid tropics of Asia.

This work provides information relevant to the nitrogen (N) management strategy of multiple cropping in upland systems in the humid tropics of the transmigration areas of Sumatra, Indonesia.

The cereal-based cropping system is low-yielding and highly nutrient exhaustive resulting in the declining of soil fertility. Summer/pre kharif fallowing leaves on the land fallow for entire season and production of the cropping system is : Uppu Sai Sravan, Koti Venkata Ramana Murthy.

Multiple cropping in Asia is often built around a summer (or wet season) crop of rice. This rice is grown in (a) irrigated or rainfed paddies where the water can be impounded, or (b) under upland conditions where water is not impounded.2 On paddy land, the first or summer crop is nearly always rice.

Tropical agricultural systems. While a number of major agricultural systems have been identified in the humid tropics with which cattle are associated (see Beets, ; FAO, a; McDowell and Hildebrand, ; Ruthenberg, ; Spedding, ) this book is concerned only with the perennial crop cultivation (see Table 1), plantation or tree crop farming system (see Figure 1), and.

Shifting cultivation (slash and burn agriculture) is a traditional cropping system that was once widely practiced throughout the humid tropics.

Due to increasing population pressure on land, the system is now mainly confined to the dense forest areas of the Amazon Basin, Central and West Africa, and Southeast Asia. Ricardo Romero of Las Cañadas in perennial staple food forest featuring peach palm, macadamia, air potato, banana, and perennial beans.

"Sustainable Agriculture and the Environment in the Humid Tropics" provides critically needed direction for developing strategies that both mitigate land degradation, deforestation, and biological resource losses and help the economic status of tropical countries.

The third section contains two papers which explore sorne possible elements ofan ecoregional approach. In the warm and humid lowlands of the tropics, web blight is possibly the single most destructive disease of beans and can cause rapid defoliation and sometimes complete crop failure.

Inan epidemic of web blight that occurred in the Guanacaste region in northern Costa Rica, resulted in a 90% reduction in bean yields (Galindo ). Large areas of the warm, humid tropics in Southeast Asia, the Pacific, Latin America, the Caribbean, and Africa are hilly or mountainous.

Jackson and Scherr () estimate that these tropical hillside areas are inhabited by million people, or one-tenth of the current world population, many of whom practice subsistence agriculture. “Carbon farming” good for the climate, farmers, and biodiversity.
