FAO has revisited the approach to quantify crop yields in response to water use and water deficit. The result of this effort is explained in this new publication: http://bit.ly/OXJFVz

This new publication will help to:

  • assess the effect of water shortages on crop production;
  • investigate the impact of climate change on crop yield;
  • compare the results of several water allocations plans;
  • optimize irrigation scheduling.
