Abstract

This chapter reviews the climate factors that influence crop production and agricultural water use. It discusses (a) modeling studies that use climate-change model projections to examine effects on agricultural water allocation and (b) scenario studies that investigate economic impacts and the potential for using adaptation strategies to accommodate changing water supplies, crop yields, and pricing. The chapter concludes with sections on ranching and drought and on disaster-relief programs.
