Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Agriculture
  • Statistics
  • Ecology

His primary areas of study are Soil water, Irrigation, Agronomy, Hydrology and Evapotranspiration. His study in Agronomy focuses on Crop yield and Deficit irrigation. His Deficit irrigation research includes elements of Agroforestry, Agricultural engineering, Chenopodium quinoa and Agriculture.

Within one scientific family, Dirk Raes focuses on topics pertaining to Lysimeter under Hydrology, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Surface irrigation. His Crop coefficient and Blaney–Criddle equation investigations are all subjects of Evapotranspiration research. The study incorporates disciplines such as Consumptive water use, Irrigation statistics, Atmometer and Irrigation management in addition to Blaney–Criddle equation.

His most cited work include:

  • Crop evapotranspiration : guidelines for computing crop water requirements (15397 citations)
  • AquaCrop-The FAO Crop Model to Simulate Yield Response to Water: I. Concepts and Underlying Principles (820 citations)
  • Green roofs as a tool for solving the rainwater runoff problem in the urbanized 21st century (640 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Dirk Raes mainly focuses on Agronomy, Irrigation, Hydrology, Crop and Deficit irrigation. His Agronomy research focuses on Crop residue and how it connects with Conventional tillage, Soil quality and No-till farming. His Irrigation research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Agriculture, Agricultural engineering, Environmental engineering and Water resource management.

As a part of the same scientific family, Dirk Raes mostly works in the field of Hydrology, focusing on Soil water and, on occasion, Canopy and Water content. His Deficit irrigation research focuses on Irrigation statistics in particular. His research in Evapotranspiration is mostly concerned with Crop coefficient.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Agronomy (31.73%)
  • Irrigation (27.40%)
  • Hydrology (24.52%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2021)?

  • Agronomy (31.73%)
  • Crop (17.31%)
  • Crop yield (12.98%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His primary areas of investigation include Agronomy, Crop, Crop yield, Irrigation and Soil water. Dirk Raes combines subjects such as Canopy and Soil fertility with his study of Agronomy. His studies in Crop integrate themes in fields like Agroforestry and Decision support system.

His Crop yield research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Agriculture, Crop residue, Tillage, Conventional tillage and Crop coefficient. His work carried out in the field of Agriculture brings together such families of science as Agricultural engineering, Catchment hydrology and Water resources. Dirk Raes studies Hydrology, namely Evapotranspiration.

Between 2011 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Crop evapotranspiration estimation with FAO56: Past and future (276 citations)
  • Crop yield response to water (273 citations)
  • AquaCrop: FAO'S crop water productivity and yield response model * (110 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Agriculture
  • Ecology
  • Statistics

His main research concerns Agronomy, Crop yield, Canopy, Crop and Crop coefficient. The concepts of his Canopy study are interwoven with issues in Biomass and Soil water. As part of the same scientific family, Dirk Raes usually focuses on Biomass, concentrating on Phenology and intersecting with Evapotranspiration.

His work in Evapotranspiration covers topics such as Animal science which are related to areas like Climate change. His work carried out in the field of Crop coefficient brings together such families of science as Soil science, Land use, Intercropping, Drainage and Soil salinity. His Deficit irrigation research integrates issues from Soil management, Fertilizer and Eragrostis.
