Abstract: Aim of the project was to design a methodology for estimating, by implementing a computational model, the irrigation water consumption at farm level in Italy by using, as a key source of information, the 6th General Agricultural Census 2010. The methodology has been applied to estimate the water consumption (in cubic meters) for the whole universe of the Italian irrigated farms as requested by EC-Regulation Nr.1166/2008. The methodology grounds on the development and integration of three models dealing with the main aspects related to the farm irrigation water consumption: the crops irrigation demand, the irrigation systems efficiency and the farmer irrigation strategy. Each model has been developed by considering the state-of-the-art methodologies, the limits imposed by the data availability and data resolution (climate, soil, crops characteristics and other statistics), the expert knowledge and the nature of the information to be collected by the Census. One of the main issues of the project has been the data collation as accurate as possible for the whole agricultural Italian area. In fact, the Italian framework is characterized by data usually produced with different standards and methodologies and managed by offices operating at different administrative levels. The MARSALa model has been calibrated with a sample of about 300 farms located in four Italian regions (Campania, Sardegna, Emilia-Romagna and Puglia), the farms sample has been designed to ensure the representativeness for the main Italian agricultural characteristics.
