Irrigation has a critical role for crop production worldwide. In particular, irrigation is a major issue due to the growing food demand and climate change. Irrigation affects yields and the emission of greenhouse gases such as CO2 and N2O by soils. Here, we review the effect of irrigation on soil organic carbon and N2O emissions. We analysed 22(More)
Water is used in dairy farming for producing feed, watering the animals, and cleaning and disinfecting barns and equipment. The objective of this study was to investigate the drinking and cleaning water use in a dairy cow barn. The water use was measured on a well-managed commercial dairy farm in North-East Germany. Thirty-eight water meters were installed(More)
Eine innovative Methode, um den Wasserbedarf bei der Produktion von Nahrungsmitteln zu modellieren und zu optimieren wird momentan am ATB im Rahmen der Nachwuchsgruppe „AgroHyd Welternährung und Wasserressourcen: eine agrarhydrologische Perspektive“ der Leibniz-Gemeinschaft (WGL) entwickelt. Zur Abbildung und Berechnung der Prozesse wird eine neue Software(More)
Irrigation water demand (IWD) is increasing worldwide, including in regions such as Germany that are characterized with low precipitation levels, yet grow water-demanding crops such as sugar beets, potatoes, and vegetables. This study aimed to calculate and analyze the spatial and temporal changes in the IWD of four crops-spring barley, oat, winter wheat,(More)
