Résumé
This research explores the effect of implementing regulated deficit irrigation and of covering agricultural water reservoirs in terms of absolute water savings in Campo de Cartagena, SE-Spain and the suitability of the Water Evaluation and Planning model to support this. This model appears to be useful in this research and shows potential for continuous research in this matter. With support of the model this research demonstrates that considerable potential water savings can be obtained. This is done by writing scenarios in which regulated deficit irrigation is applied thereby reducing demand, the agricultural water reservoirs are covered thereby reducing evaporation and a combination of both these scenarios.
