Agricultural water consumption corresponds to 85% of global freshwater and is projected to double in 2050. The global water footprint of crop production in the period 1996â2005 was estimated to 7404 Gm3yrâ1. Crops especially wheat (1087 Gm3yrâ1), rice (992 Gm3yrâ1) and maize (770 Gm3yrâ1) require significantly amounts of water for production. In the coming years, crop production will increase in order to meet the growing demand of food, the new diet preferences and the shift from fossil energy toward bioenergy. Few new lands will be available so all production must come from the current natural resource base, requiring an intensification by increasing land and water use.
Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
