The work is the result of researches conducted on irrigation in Cuba , by the Research Institute of Irrigation and Drainage, Experimental Stations of the Ministry of Agriculture and the Ministry of Higher Education. The results show that the irrigation increases yields from 21% to 209%, depending on the response of different crops to the irrigation. The cultivated plants do not have similar behaviours in irrigated conditions: sugarcane, pasture and mandioca crops are among the smaller response to irrigation; banana fruit and sweet potato crops were greater response to irrigation, what are capable of tripling production compared to the not irrigated areas.
The Tobacco had a response moderate to the irrigation with an increase in yields of 66%. In tomatoes, corn and potatoes, irrigation is essential when grown in the winter campaign, achieving in these conditions doubling or tripling the yields. The soybean had a different response depending on the sowing season, reaching increases in harvest from 0.94 to 0.99 t / ha.
