Thirsty mangoes could thrive on scarce water

In water-scarce subtropical regions, mango (Mangifera indica L.) is often grown under irrigation, which poses a threat in the context of changing climate. Researchers Durán et al. reviewed strategies based on deficit irrigation techniques to save water during drought or insufficient rain periods. They reckon that it is vital to redesign irrigation schemes and implement deficit irrigation strategies to save water but maintain yield while producing fruits with improved quality.
