Erratum to: The human dimensions of water saving irrigation: lessons learned from Chinese smallholder farmers

Erratum

Erratum to: Agric Hum Values DOI 10.1007/s10460-014-9565-8

Due to an unfortunate turn of events wrong units have been introduced in two instances. One under the heading “Conflict and cooperation” where it should read:

“In both villages, each household had an average of 12–15 mu (~2–2.5 acres) of land divided across three to four plots.”

The other in Table 2 (reproduced in this erratum) where the column title should read “Total land (mu)”. Both should be regarded as final version by the reader.
