63 Symposium--Diversification and Intensification of Cropping Systems in Semi-Arid Regions

Oral Session
ASA Section: Agronomic Production Systems
The theme of the symposium is to illustrate developments and advances across time and geographic regions in intensification and diversification of semi-arid cropping systems.    The goal of the symposium is to learn the current recommended/adopted cropping systems, why these cropping systems are successful, and what predictions can be made for future changes in dryland cropping systems.
