Special Issue "Irrigation Management"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2020) | Viewed by 8598
Novel tools, such as the use of satellites and unmanned aerial vehicles, are being developed to improve plant health and production while improving water use efficiency and crop profitability. New agricultural systems and technologies that integrate phenomics are being used to enhance agricultural sustainability and develop cultivars adapted to salinity and drought. Urban growth and food demand have also imposed new challenges to find alternate water uses such as re-use water, saline water, and developing new production systems. Climate change has also motivated the development of biofuel production systems and the use of marginal waters and soils. Crop modeling is an excellent tool to explore new production systems, cropping systems, and explore environmental impacts and study water use efficiencies. Deficit irrigation is an excellent option in several areas with a limited water supply and increasing energy costs.
