AbstractThis document provides a comprehensive review of Best Management Practices (BMPs) for optimized used soil and water in agricultural systems within the context of the SHui project. This document, which also has been translated into Spanish and Chinese could be use: 1- To provide to any reader an overview of the technical description of available options of BMPs for optimizing soil and water use. 2- To identify how BMPs are defined and requested in relation to large policy instruments, particularly the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), to provide guidance on simulated scenario as well as on recommendations for improvement to policy stakeholders. 3- To provide a common framework, within the project as well for external users, for the definition of BMPs using a standardize terminology, and an appraisal on how some of the most common hydrologic models can be used, or not, to introduce the effect of these BMPs on scenario analysis.
DescriptionThese BMPs have been always reviewed in the context of the SHui project, which covers different agro-climatic regions across Europe and China and these agricultural systems: 1- Rainfed tree crops. 2- Irrigated tree crops. 3- Cereal based rotations under rainfed conditions. 4- Cereal based rotations under irrigation. Regarding use of water for irrigation, this document will also cover the use of low-quality water, including wastewater, and the use of recycled water for irrigation.
