Agricultural water productivity indices were determined in Iran to help develop suitable methods for better water use. The paper analyses the water resources situation in Iran and goes on to determine water productivity in terms of Benefit per-Drop (BPD), Crop per-Drop (CPD) and Net Benefit per-Drop (NBPD) at seven different irrigation systems including the Moghan, Dez and Gilan Irrigation Networks (90,000, 100,000 and 173,000 ha respectively). The results were BPDs of 0.07, 0.04 and 0.12 $/m3 respectively and NBPDs of 0.04, 0.02 and -0.03 $/m3.
