Shortage of water in rice cultivation area of Iran is going to be a major problem in near future. In order to investigate the best Irrigation method and nitrogen application in new condition an experiment was conducted in a CRBD with 3 replications, at The Rice Research Institute of Iran during cropping season of 2006 and 2007. Four nitrogen levels (0, 45, 60 and 75 kg/ha) were splited on 3 different irrigation managements (full irrigation, 5 and 8 day interval irrigation). Results showed interval irrigation decreased water use, but increased water productivity in 5 and 8 day interval irrigation by 40% and 60% respectively in comparison to full irrigation, without any yield loss. The best nitrogen practice was 60 kg/ha, using nitrogen more than 60 kg/ha did not increase rice yield. Over all, 8 day interval irrigation with 60 kgN/ha gave the best yield and the highest water productivity.
