Abstract
Fruit production is strongly dependent on irrigation water in Spain. In contrast with annual crops, fruit producers are concerned not only with current year yields but also with future years? production or even with the potential loss of a strong investment in the case of death of the plantation. According to climate change predictions, extreme precipitation events ? floods and droughts ? are likely to increase in the future. This means that there might be a potential demand for hydrological drought insurance among fruit producers.
