Irrigated Acreage Projections in Georgia

Irrigated acreage is an important indicator for agricultural water demand which is a major category of water use. Three methodologies were applied in this study to project irrigated acreage of major crops in Georgia from 2010 to 2050. These three methodologies show consistent results. Total irrigated acreage of major crops in Georgia is projected to increase for the next 40 years. The acreage projection results provide useful information for Georgia agricultural policy makers and farmers. However, the methodologies used in the study have some limitations. They can only be used under certain assumptions. Thus, better methodologies are needed for future related research.
