Indicators using this data

Economic Water Productivity (ECWP) of irrigated crops Economic Water Productivity (ECWP) of irrigated crops Water productivity can be expressed either in physical and economic terms. On this basis, the economic water productivity (i.e. linking resource input to tangible economic outcome) for irrigated crops can be estimated by the use of the following formula: Economic Water Productivity (ECWP) of irrigated crops (€ PPS/m 3 ) Economic Output crop (€ PPS) / Water Use Irrigation crop (m 3 )  Where, Economic Output crop is the production value at producer price in € PPS * (values at current prices) of a specific irrigated crop in a specified area (NUTS 2). The data currently used refer to the year 2010 and are from Eurostat economic accounts for agriculture – regional agricultural statistics. * Purchasing Power Standard (PPS) is an artificial currency used by Eurostat for the common currency in which national accounts aggregates are expressed when adjusted for price level differences using purchasing power parities. Theoretically, one PPS can buy the same amount of goods and services in each country. Water Use Irrigation crop is the total water used (in m3) for the irrigation of the specific crop in the same area and for the same year (currently 2010 from the Eurostat Farm Structure Survey -FSS [1] , [2] ). The analysis is conducted using data from the latest available year (currently 2010), while the spatial scale used is the NUTS 2 level. The ECWP has been calculated for the “main crops” irrigated in Europe, namely: cereals (excluding maize and rice), maize, rice, potatoes, sugar beets, citrus, sunflower, olives and vineyards.  Some of these are of a regional interest (e.g. citrus), while some categories (e.g. olives) contain a large variety and range of products (i.e. table olives vs. olive oil) challenging the analysis.
