Annual freshwater withdrawals, agriculture (% of total freshwater withdrawal)

Annual freshwater withdrawals, agriculture (% of total freshwater withdrawal) in France was 9.49 as of 2014. Its highest value over the past 22 years was 14.01 in 2002, while its lowest value was 9.49 in 2012.

Definition: Annual freshwater withdrawals refer to total water withdrawals, not counting evaporation losses from storage basins. Withdrawals also include water from desalination plants in countries where they are a significant source. Withdrawals can exceed 100 percent of total renewable resources where extraction from nonrenewable aquifers or desalination plants is considerable or where there is significant water reuse. Withdrawals for agriculture are total withdrawals for irrigation and livestock production. Data are for the most recent year available for 1987-2002.
