Résumé
Evaluate water need for a crop in a quick and efficient way it’s a necessity nowadays even more requested in hydrology. Being able to do these evaluations quickly, allows us to simulate and understand different kind of scenarios, actual and futuristic, in a very efficacious way. The aim of this study is, indeed, to create a tool, in a shape of a website, easy to use, that gives real and true values, but at the same time it has to be fully customizable from the user, both in his actual version and in possible future improvements. The study is then concluded with the analysis of actual world situation in terms of agricultural production (looking at 14 most cultivated crops), to prove that, redistributing in an efficient way those crops between the countries, it’s possible to increase the production in terms of kilograms, kilocalories and proteins, reducing the utilize of water and without adding a single hectare of land to the current cultivated land in the world. At the end of this work, there are also presented some possible scenarios of future improving.
