skos:scopeNote Although the term ‘water use efficiency’ is widely promoted and used, a universal definition has yet to be agreed and adopted. In the water sector, the term ‘water use efficiency’ is generally understood to be a dimensionless ratio between water use and water withdrawn, while in the agriculture sector it is often used to measure the efficiency of crops (irrigated or rainfed) to produce biomass and/or harvestable yield. The net result has been many miscommunications and misunderstandings [...]. Therefore, it is recommended that the term ‘water use efficiency’ be avoided, and use should be made only of either ‘irrigation efficiency’ or ‘water productivity’. (FAO, 2017)
