Book: Response of Crops to Limited Water: Understanding and Modeling Water Stress Effects on Plant Growth Processes, Advances in Agricultural Systems Modeling 11, 2008
Published by: American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, Soil Science Society of America

 

How does your work "fit" in the whole system, in the real world? Agriculture research today requires a whole-system quantitative approach, and farmers need simple management tools derived from robust models. Agricultural system modelers see a snarl of competing water demands, depleted aquifers, drought, and changing plant water requirements due to global warming and know where the answers lie: in achieving conservation of rain and irrigation water, preservation of groundwater quality, and increased water use efficiency in crop production. The first in the groundbreaking Advances in Agricultural Systems Modeling series from ASA-CSSA-SSSA, Response of Crops to Limited Water: Understanding and Modeling Water Stress Effects on Plant Growth Processes compiles the work of world experts, systematically presenting recent knowledge of water stress effects and emphasizing the knowledge synthesis that will move agriculture forward.
