Using the Penman-Monteith model and Theil index combining the CROPWAT software, the authors of this paper study the Jilin Province. They quantify the virtual water content of agriculture and livestock husbandry, and they give comprehensively evaluate the spatiotemporal structure evolution of these parameters. The study aims to (1) help make clear the water consumption of agriculture and livestock husbandry and (2) offer advice on rational water utilization and agricultural structure adjustment.
