    A review of simplified crop-water production functions, with a proposal for modifiation: Author(s) Sorbello Herrendorf, V.R. Source: Wageningen: International Institute for Land Reclamation & Improvement - Department(s) International Institute for Land Reclamation and Improvement: Publication type: Scientific book (author) Publication year. Crop-water production functions Crop-water production functions relate seasonal water use to crop yield. Previous efforts to represent the crop-water production function have suggested adopting the general shape of, or fitting field data to linear (Barrett and Skogerboe, ; English, ;.

    The water running off the field cannot contribute to crop production, so the crop-water production function can only be based on the amount of infiltrated water. The runoff water has economic implications that must be accounted for separately. Crop water production function and its temporal and spatial variation regulation Since crop water production function reveals how crop yield varies with the water variation, it has served as the basis for scientific water saving irrigation. As a matter of fact, crop water production function has always been the research focus.

    CROP WATER PRODUCTIVITY: CAN IT BE MONITORED? World Water Week Stockholm, 23 August , The development of technology tools for achieving food security, especially in crop water usage goes faster and faster. One of these new tools is the use of near real-time available data on crop water productivity, obtained from satellite images.   The link between the agricultural production and hydrological systems in integrated hydro‐economic models is the crop‐water production function. Crop‐water production functions used in hydro‐economic models commonly describe crop yield returns to total seasonal irrigation inputs.

Simulated crop-water production functions for several crops when irrigated with saline waters (Hilgardia) [John Letey] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying : John Letey. The crop water production function developed in this Crop-water production functions book can be used to predict the effect of water stress on yield loss and consequent farm profit loss, which is essential in planning for.

The book presents articles on irrigation scheduling and applied timing criteria; the problem of energy utilization and management in irrigation; and the relationship between irrigation requirements and crop response in terms of crop-water production functions.

Comprehensive and thorough, this essential book combines two vital needs, food and water, and examines what must be done in order to keep up with the ever-growing human population.

Crop water production function is the relationship between obtained marketable yield and the total amount of water used by plant through evapotranspiration. Different mathematical expressions have been derived from field experiments to predict yield knowing water use.

Such expressions provide a powerful tool in water allocation optimization. CROP-WATER PRODUCTION FUNCTIONS 63 (2) Another measure of desirability frequently encountered in the irrigation literature is that of maximum water use efficiency. Maximum water use efficiency is said to exist when the crop yield per unit of water input is by: Crop‐water production functions were computed for tall fescue (Festuca elatior arundinacea L.) for various levels of salinity in the irrigation water.

A comparison was made between calculated and published experimentally measured values of leaching fractions and yields of tall fescue grown under conditions of various irrigation water. Crop-water production functions (CWPFs) are a useful tool for irrigation planning, but derivation of CWPFs by field experimentation is expensive, and traditional analytical techniques are not well suited to derivation of by: This publication is intended to provide guidance in determining crop water requirements and their application in planning, design and operation of irrigation projects.

Part presents suggested methods to derive crop water requirements. The use of four well-known methods for determining such requirements is defined.

consumptive water use or irrigation water applied. CWPFs are helpful for optimizing management of limited water resources, but are site-specific and vary from year to year, especially when yield is expressed as a function of irrigation water applied. Crop-water production functions are important tools for quantifying effects of water scarcity and climate change on agricultural production, and are also widely used within hydro-economic models to support design of inter-sectoral water management policies.
