Abstract :
Water is one of the vital human capital and other creatures of the world, which has no alternative, and is considered as the main driver of agricultural activity. In many countries, especially in arid and semi-arid regions, such as Iran, water is more important for the production and processing of agricultural crops. Unfortunately, despite the severe restrictions of water resources, the efficiency of using this very valuable input is low. Proper management of water consumption in farms and utilization units in the form of policies and executive programs is the most important step in optimizing the use of water resources and coping with dehydration and dehydration in different parts of the country. One of the measures taken to improve the efficiency and savings of agricultural water consumption is the development of using pressurized irrigation systems. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the economic impact of irrigation program on wheat crop in Ardebil province. For this purpose, the data of crop year 2015-2016 were completed by completing 340 questionnaires from two groups of farmers in the area¬(170 items of questionnaires from irrigated farmers and 170 other questionnaires from traditional irrigation farmers) and production function model used Is.The results of the study show that with the implementation of pressurized irrigation system, water consumption and production costs were saved and wheat production and water productivity levels increased by one percent significantly.
