Adapting crops to drought requires genetic and management solutions. There are many possible management systems (e.g. combinations of planting dates, fertilizers, irrigation, row spacing, population, cropping systems) and many possible genotypes to combat drought. The challenge is to identify favourable combinations of genotypes and management practices in a complex system. Examples of genetic (stay-green in sorghum & wheat) and management (water-saving strategies in rice) solutions are presented.
