Water Use Efficiency

How to Mitigate the Effects of Drought Stress on Crop Production

Update: This webinar is already finished. 

Climate Change is the major challenge agriculture is facing during this century. While the world population is growing, drought is becoming a serious concern in more and more regions of the world and adversely affects yields. Among the options to mitigate the negative effects of drought on crop production, scientists found that plant nutrients play a key role. Research focuses on their function in stress physiology and it has shown that a balanced plant nutrition helps plants to mitigate negative effects of drought stress. Nutrients such as potassium, magnesium, sulphur and boron also help increasing water use efficiency and help the plants to longer withstand adverse conditions.  

Register for this webinar and learn about recent approaches in plant nutrition science to mitigate the effects of drought stress in plant nutrition.
