Fresh water, especially ground water, available for supporting crop production across the world is declining quickly due to competing demands for this commodity from multiple burgeoning human enterprises. The need for more and more food production for the ever increasing human and animal population calls for the development of measures to make irrigated agriculture more sustainable by developing better crop-lines and agro-management practices that produce higher yields with less water. Optimizing crop water use through dedicated research for increased water use efficiency in crop production is key for assuring food security for everyone in the world. This endeavor calls for collecting and publishing world-wide cutting-edge research about optimizing water use in agriculture.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process.
