Abstract
If world food production is to be increased, the greatest increase per investment in many areas of the world is luckily to be derived where productivity is -already high but limited by management rather than resources. Information is available for some crops which allow farm managers to minimize exposure to soil water deficits through various strategies such as supplemental irrigation (Hansen n aI., 1979),proper fertilizer use (Viets, 1962). Plant Population (Olson. 1971) and row spacing (Blum and Navdl. 1976) and use of maturity Geno types that match available soil water supply (Dowker, 1971). One of the crops widely used in parts of the world where food supplies are scarce is millet
