yield gap

yield gap

the difference between the YIELD on established undated or long dated gilt-edged BONDS and the average yield on SHARES. Before 1960, the yield on gifts was less than the yield on shares, and it was argued that such a gap was justified by the greater riskiness or variability in the return on shares. However, since about 1960, some countries like the UK have experienced a reverse yield gap with the yield on gifts exceeding the yield on shares as a result of high inflation and high interest rates.

Researchers from across the globe address irrigation techniques; nutrient management; sustainable rice cultivation in coastal saline soils; dry-seeded and aerobic rice cultivation; processing rice straw and husks as co-products; yield gap analysis; developments in the system of rice intensification; assessing the sustainability impacts of rice cultivation; the biology, ecology, and management of rice insect pests; plant protection products; integrated pest management for sustainable cultivation; control of rodent pests; and integrated weed management.
Therefore, estimating the cost of soil constraints to a cropping system requires: (1) measurement of the size of the yield gap (Yg) between yield potential (Yp) and average yield; (2) identification of the key cause(s) of this Yg; (3) separation of soil constraints from other yield-limiting factors; and (4) costing the reduced production caused by the soil constraints.
