During the period 1994-1998, the management of irrigation water in the sun dark tobacco of “Pelo de Oro” variety, in a Brown with carbonate soil for the conditions of Cabaiguan was studied. We used six management of irrigation water, in a randomized complete block design with four repetitions; the irrigation was carried out using the sprinkler. There was a positive response to the different irrigation water managements. Of these, the perspective treatment is one in which irrigates when soil moisture drops to 85% of field capacity during the stage from adaptation to growth of the culture and uses water requirement in each irrigation reduced to 50% during the cutting of capaduras. There was an average yield of 1927 kg. / ha and a saving of irrigation water of 18%.
