Excerpt: Much of the future food needed by the increasing numbers of people in developing countries will have to come from rainfed rather than irrigated lands, because the possibilities for increasing the area under irrigation are limited. Subhumid to semiarid areas are characterized by rainless periods, both within and between rainy seasons, which are generally unpredictable. Because of this the output of crops, pastures and streamflow is affected not only by the total amount of rainfall in a particular season, but also by the frequency, duration and severity of water stress in the plants at different stages of growth.
