Abstract
The main objective of the research presented in this paper is to assess the economic impact of the application of irrigation in the production of basic field crops (maize, sunflower, soybean and sugar beet) on family farms operating in the South Banat area. Based on the data collected from the survey conducted on 75 family farms specialized in market oriented production without irrigation, using the method of models, calculation and comparison of the obtained results, an assessment was made of the economic impact of the application of irrigation in the production of basic field crops, as well as the assessment of their business performance. It has been established that the most significant economic impact from the application of irrigation in the production of basic field crops can be achieved on farms with 10-20 ha of arable land. Gross margins per hectare of arable land, depending on the type of soil prevailing in the holding, increased from 87% to 146%, while income per active member of the family farm dealing exclusively with agriculture could double.
