I think that we need to take this theory with a big old chunk of skepticism. Dr. William A. Albrecht seems hardly to have been your average crackpot, and he seems to have made a number of interesting observations about plant nutrition and growth, but neither are all other botanists, farmers, and extension agentsW blind or ignorant.
Although some crops in some situations may be affected by drought in some ways, this may not generalize to all crops in all situations. In general, it seems obvious that drought (serious shortage of rain) can be expected to seriously impair the health, growth, production, and survival of crops.
