Intensive dairy farming systems have been blamed of negative impact on environment and landscape, contributing to reduction of plant biodiversity, alterations of soil integrity, excessive use of fertilizers and water for irrigation and pollution (EC, 2000). In most Mediterranean Countries, irrigation water for agricultural purposes exceeds 50% of total national water requirement, particularly during summer (Wriedt et al., 2008). Global climate change and competition among agricultural, domestic and industrial water users will unavoidably intensify problems of water scarcity in the Mediterranean regions (Goubanova and Li, 2007; IPCC, 2007; Rodriguez Diaz et al., 2007).
