229 Symposium--Innovative Crop and Water Management Technologies to Enhance Crop Water Productivity

Oral Session
ASA Section: Climatology & Modeling
Maintaining and enhancing crop productivity, with diminished water supplies, challenges management of rain-fed and irrigated cropping systems. This session will address measures of crop productivity, in response to water use, and identify biophysical constraints. Innovations in technology and management which enhance crop productivity will be featured. Participants will gain insight into opportunities for improving crop productivity, in relation to water use.
