Water use and irrigation in soybean


Water is the most common yield limiting factor for soybean production in Europe. The occurrence of dry and hot periods in central and eastern Europe has increased in recent years. Timely and effi­cient irrigation can increase and stabilise yields in areas where summer droughts are common. Efficient irrigation management needs to account for environmental and economic factors.
