One of the main challenges of climate change on agriculture in UK is how to adaptto the potential changes to the availability of water. Changes in rainfall distributionmay potentially lead to an increase in drought frequency, magnitude and duration. Inthis research a Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) and a Malmquist Index (MI) arecombined with a double bootstrap methodology to measure changes in Total FactorProductivity of general cropping farms in East Anglia. More specifically, the DEAtechnique was used to measure the year by year efficiency score for the farms in thesample and the MI and its components used to derive information on productivity overtime. Data for the input – output models was obtained from the Farm Business Survey.Climate change is taken into consideration by using data for water cost as a proxyindicator of water consumption per farm. Results reveal changes in total, technicaland scale efficiency and provide information on how the 2011 drought affect the TFPof the farms in the sample
