Resumen:

To evaluate the vulnerability of agriculture under Mediterranean conditions, the real water needs of agriculture in the Fluvià watershed (Catalonia, NE Spain) were estimated for the XXIst century using a combination of downscaled climate projections (ECHAM5 plus MM5) in two IPCC scenarios (B1 and A2), watershed hydrological model (SWAT) and FAO procedure to calculate crop potential evapotranspiration. In comparison with baseline conditions (1984-2008), climate projections predicted a 12% (B1) to 28% (A2) reduction in precipitation, and a 2.2°C (B1) to 3.6°C (A2) increment of mean annual temperature at the end of the XXI Century (2076-2100). The changes of the environmental conditions would affect the real water availability in different crops: water required for irrigation would increase significantly along the century, ranging from 40 to 250% depending on the crop, because of a direct decrease in the amount of water available along the growing season and because of the effects of the projected climatic conditions on potential evapotranspiration (ET 0) and on the phenology of these crops. Results are showing the high sensitivity of agriculture, despite its expanding technology, to changes in climate, and even more to site, plot, orchard or terroir conditions. © 2012 Elsevier B.V.
