FLORES LAZARO, Netzahualcoyotl; SALDIVAR VALDEZ, Américo; HERNANDEZ MADRIGAL, Víctor Manuel  e  PEREZ VEYNA, Oscar. Assessment of agricultural irrigation water in Zamora Valley, Michoacán, México. Rev. Mex. Cienc. Agríc [online]. 2017, vol.8, n.4, pp.811-823. ISSN 2007-0934.

The lack of water constitutes one of the main problems of humanity, so it is necessary to manage this resource with values of existence and legacy schemes; that is, with non-use value.Efficiency in water use is a necessary but not sufficient condition to ensure this resource sustainability. The assessment of water for agricultural use should undoubtedly contribute to strengthening decisions support on the challenges and questions associated with the imperative need to ensure the resource for present and future generations (sustainability). This research was carried out in the sub basin of the Duero River, Michoacán. With the objective of assessing irrigation water as an input in strawberry production. Results when applying the method of productivity changing showed income of $106 215.30 per hectare higher than that obtained in maize and wheat crops, and a monetary value of water: $3.67 m-3. The importance of water resource as a human right does not mean giving it away, but a minimum level of undeniable provision must be established above which users must make responsible use and generate culture for the payment of the ecosystem service and not only for their administration. Social responsibility must be the constant in any economic activity; and it must contribute to the conservation and maintenance of natural ecosystems that provide ecosystem goods and services such as water.
