Special Issue "Water Management of Horticultural Crops"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 November 2018).
Water is one of the most important plant growth regulators, and how well we manage it will influence our future well-being. Because of their higher value and more intense cultural practices, horticultural crops are better suited for adaptation to improved water-saving technologies than are many agronomic crops (Parson, 2000). The demand for water is currently increasing, while water resources are scarce. This is a reality that we have to face with the help of research, the technique, and the correct management of the resource.
The purpose of this Special Issue “Water Management of Horticultural Crops” is to present innovative studies, tools, approaches, and reviews that have been successful in this field: Irrigation management, irrigation advisory services, role of technology in irrigation, diverse experiences in extension, and in general, any innovation that improves the efficiency of water use in horticultural crops.
