This study of the benefits of micro-irrigation systems calculated on-farm production, income and water use efficiency for horticultural and other crops in terms of the benefit cost (B.C.) ratio. The B.C. ratio of drip irrigation was found to be greater than conventional methods of irrigation, also its water use efficiency and monetary gains. The paper presents information on water use efficiency, productivity and advantages of micro-irrigation.
