Water footprint is one of the critical impact areas of agricultural and food production activities. Therefore, it is critical to present a Special Issue that invites papers on theoretical and practical contributions towards reducing the water footprint for the sustainable development of agricultural systems. The following areas could be of interest for this Special Issue: 1. Life cycle assessment applications in agriculture with a water footprint focus; 2. specific applications of sustainable farming practices (technology, equipment, land treatment, etc.); 3. agricultural value chain and water footprint; 4. innovative irrigation systems; 5. water re-use and recycling in agricultural operations; and 6. circular economy and agricultural and food production.Dr. Gokhan Egilmez
