Hence, agricultural crops are usually exposed to one or both (at various times of a growing season) of the water imbalances such as water scarcity (deficit) and/or waterlogging/inundation. Both water stresses endanger food production, often contributing to various additional constraints (soil salinity/alkalinity, organic matter depletion). Managing the optimal water relations in the root zone in the agroecosystems is becoming increasingly challenging due to global ...
