Water Supply Special Issue on
Water Supply in Agriculture
CALL FOR PAPERS
Sufficient food supplies are considered a core element for the development of modern societies, while the intensification of water cycles creates serious problems in agriculture. In particular, over the last several years the absences of regular rainy seasons and frequent storms have increasingly created serious damage to traditional cropping systems (water crises, flooding, drought and desertification).
The main aim of this special issue is to increase the scientific knowledge on water resources and climate change interactions for the agricultural sector at local, regional, and global scales. It is also, of high importance to increase water productivity and prevent crop damages under extreme climate conditions and different anthropogenic interventions, through various measures (improved agronomic practices, optimal irrigation water management) and geoinformatic techniques.
Based on this the proposed special issue will provide valuable information to the readership of Water Supply, the follwing topics will be considered for inclusion:
- Water resources management & monitoring
- Agricultural water-use efficiency
- Water supplies and climate change in agriculture
- Geoinformatics & decision support systems
- Irrigation & hydrological modeling
- Water scarcity & productivity
- Deadline for paper submission: 30 November 2020
- Expected Publication: April 2021
