Special Issue Information
Factors such as continuous population growth, climate change and global water shortages have led to agricultural production facing a severe "water crisis". Identifying ways in which to produce more food with every drop of water is critical for sustainable agriculture and maintaining food security. In short, there is an urgent need to improve the water use efficiency of crops, and developing effective field management practices is the key to achieving this. This Special Issue will compile new knowledge pertaining to agricultural management practices to improve the water use efficiency of crops in agricultural production, particularly in dryland farming systems. The main contents include, but are not limited to, the following aspects: the exploration of water harvesting and water saving management practices; the response of crop water use to management practices; and the physiological and ecological mechanisms for improving crop water use efficiency.
