Water Dynamics in Plant Production
Water Dynamics in Plant Production
The source of life is water. Life began in the oceans, which represent the largest stock of water on Earth. Much less water is stored below the land surface in the form of fresh groundwater, amounting to not quite 0.8% of the earth’s total water reserves, while lakes and rivers combined only contribute a further...
