The average ET values were 7, 9, and 13 % in 2020, 2030, and 2040, respectively. Snyder et al. (2011) concluded that the impact of global warming on ET will likely be less in locations with higher wind speeds. 9 m s−1. Furthermore, the percentage of increase in ET under A1B climate change scenario was the lowest in the three tested future years in these five governorates.

BISm Model The required irrigation water need to be applied to the studied crops was estimated using BISm model (Snyder et al. 2004). The model requires planting and harvesting dates as input. The model calculates crop coefficient (kc). The model also account for water depletion from root zone. Therefore, it requires to input total water holding capacity and available water in the soil. 1). Planting and harvesting dates under current climate for the studied crops in each of the 17 governorates were obtained from bulletins published by Agricultural Research Center.
