Grain Production in Low Rainfall Environments: A World View

Research contributors: 
Plain text source: 
What I am suggesting is that we start to talk about the total rainfall over a given area and then confine our planting and fertilization to 20% to 30% of the total area... (More on this in "Blue sky thinking) I believe that a 25% yield increase would be easily achievable given the absence of frost risk and the resulting ability to have our grain crops filling in soft conditions...
