The present study evaluated the effects of inoculation with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF; Glomus iranicum var. tenuihypharum sp. nova) on the physiological performance and production of lettuce plants grown under greenhouse conditions and supplied with reclaimed water (RW; urban-treated wastewater with high electrical conductivity; 4.19 dS m−1).

Agricultural water reservoirs (AWRs) are commonly used to guarantee water supply throughout the whole irrigation season in arid and semiarid areas. An important fraction of the total stored water is lost through evaporation, substantially decreasing overall irrigation efficiency. In this study, the effects of suspended shade cloth covers (SSCCs) on reducing(More)
Evapotranspiration (ET) is an important component of the surface energy and hydrological balance and the main consumptive agriculture water use. Commonly used methodologies to estimate ET require validation with field data to provide accurate results. In addition, the evaluation of the net ecosystem exchange rate (F NEE) has gained interest in recent times.(More)
