Table 1 National average CWRs weighted by district production.

CWRs (mm H2O year−1) were calculated for each district using averaged climate variables covering the years 2000 through 2009. Green CWRs for rainfed crops are consistently higher than for irrigated crops because of differences in the distribution of rainfed (R) and irrigated (I) cereal production. Values in parentheses are the production-weighted SDs. Ellipses indicate that the crop is not produced during a particular season.
