Virtual Water. Discover how much water is embedded in every product

Virtual Water. Discover how much water is embedded in every product

Published by Thorsten Kern
To produce food, water is consumed by the plants in the field through evaporation and transpiration. The amount of water needed varies with crops and depends from place to place, on local productivity and conditions of available water supply through rainfall or irrigation. Once the product is harvested and becomes available on the market, the water embedded in the product changes status from ‘real’ water to ‘virtual’ water. In this poster you can see how much water is "embedded" in each product and discover how much water is needed to produce it.
