    ABSTRACT: The shortage of irrigation water is one of the most important problems which Iran is facing. Irrigation water pricing is one of the economic approaches to manage irrigation water consumption and using it efficiently. This study purpose is to evaluate the effect of irrigation water price induction on productivity of agriculture section in Iran (case: Kashan). This study is an application development in terms of objective and a post-event in terms of the study design, and is descriptive in terms of conclusion. The study results show that during study period (2006-2010), irrigation water price has risen in Kashan region. But this leads not only to increasing average cultivated land per a farmer, but also to increasing crops and garden products’ monetary productivity. It means that Iranian government can use irrigation water price induction as a tool for increasing productivity in agriculture section in Iran. In addition, crops and garden products have different productivities. Results also show that dill and apricot have the highest productivity in all crops and garden product in the region respectively.
