Abstract:
Background and Objective: Substantially increasing the productivity of water used in agriculture is essential to meet goals of food and environmental security. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the water productivity of agricultural products in Torbat-e-Jam plain of Khorasan Razavi province. Materials and Methods: In this study, the required information was collected and analyzed through the Agricultural Jihad Organization of the province and farmers in the region and agricultural and water specialists in the area. For analyzing and evaluating economic productivity, three indices of yield per unit volume of water (CPD), income index per unit of water volume (BPD) and net return per unit of volume of water (NBPD) were used. Results: The results showed that crop priority based on CPD indices up to third rank were forage corn, sugar beet and melon and based on NBPD and BPD indices, melon, forage corn and sugarbeet were respectively. Conclusion: In conclusion, it is suggested that crops with less water consumption and high profitability for farmers and ranchers cultivated, instead of crops with high water consumption.
