The objective of the study was to determine the limits of economic justification for irrigation system capacity use. The first step was focused on determining the lower limit of capacity use by comparing the economic effects of irrigation with the costs of the irrigation system use. In addition, while determining these limits the need was stressed to consider the economic effects of irrigation by optimizing the production structure and the modes for limit determination under irrigation and non-irrigation conditions. Eventually, the empirically verified possibility stating that this limit may be determined by comparing the water processing prices with its cost price is given. The limit was found to be the point at which these two prices equalize.
