Modeling Crop Water Use in the Pacific Northwest: The USBR AgriMet Program

By Peter L. Palmer


Water supplies are limited in the arid western United States, and demands on water resources continue to grow. Environmental concerns for fish and wildlife, endangered species, and recreation call for reductions in consumptive use, leaving more water in rivers, lakes and streams.
