Abstract

The unseasonably warm weather and below-normal precipitation across the United States present a challenge in planning for wise water use in the home and in the field, especially if the trend persists. In the East and Midwest, water management for crop production, lawns and domestic use is often left to the whim of nature. This easy-going attitude may be sufficient in areas experiencing near normal rainfall. Unpredictable weather conditions and lack of moisture availability may lead to water shortages and consequently crop failures, so the need for water management for domestic and agricultural uses is critical. Overuse of water may contribute to increased water depletion from aquifers and streams.
