Abstract in Undetermined

In this paper, the agricultural status in Syria regarding virtual water flow is presented. Crop patterns, area, yield, and water consumption in agriculture are discussed. The historical change in crop pattern and the cultivated land is analyzed. The embedded water in different crops and the virtual water flow due to agriculture products were estimated. It was found that the annual imported and exported virtual water from agricultural products are about 14580 and 1790 Million Cubic Meters (MCM), respectively. The economic analysis shows that citrus, tomatoes, and potatoes have high values of gross profit to water use ratio GP/WU, while sugar beet and cotton have low values.
