Crop yield response to water
FAO has revisited the approach to quantify crop yields in response to water use and water deficit. The result of this effort is explained in this new publication: http://bit.ly/OXJFVz
This new publication will help to:
- assess the effect of water shortages on crop production;
- investigate the impact of climate change on crop yield;
- compare the results of several water allocations plans;
- optimize irrigation scheduling.
