Under the urban conditions of Alamar municipality, on the coast north of the city of Havana, were studied the yields of viands, vegetables, grains and fruit trees in three plots: the first is in terms of irrigation and is dedicated mainly to vegetables The second plot is earmarked for deficit irrigation of viands, vegetables, grains and fruit, the third in drought conditions is used in the production of viands, grains, fruits and some vegetables.

In the fruit are grown: banana fruit, citrus, Annona, guava, bomb fruit, but there are other fruit trees.
We found that the yields are influenced by the structure of sowing used, the varieties , the various agricultural factors, conditions of soil and climate, obtaining annual average values for study crops of: 8 to 16 tons per hectare in not irrigated areas, 17 to 25 tonnes per hectare when using deficit irrigation and over 25 tonnes / hectare in irrigated areas.
