If I understand correctly, you want to determine what the consumption rate is of agriculture? Do you have the data for the return flows? Do you have precipitation and inflow data?
If you're modeling agriculture as a demand site, consumption is actually one of the parameters WEAP requires, not one of the results it produces. However, if you have sufficient data, you could try to determine the consumption rate by looking at the results different values produce, and seeing which is closest to the data you have for your system.

If there is no data for return flow from agricultural node, which value should be used for general?
We have precipitation data.

Yes,i want to determine what consumption rate is of agriculture.But,i haven't sufficient data.So,should i generally use consumption rate for agriculture amoung 0% to 100%?

You can try estimating a consumption rate. The water not consumed would return to the river in your model. You would have to look at this river flow and see if it looks right. If it doesn't, it could be your consumption rate isn't right, but it could also be something else upstream in your model.
