Abstract: Today's world faces serious population increase. On the other hand, limited available resources for the man have resulted in an intensive competition and challenge between various economical sections and parts. One of the main and limiting factors of the Iranian agriculture section development is the water entry. Thus, optimized exploitation management which is achieved through establishment of balance between supply and demand of this scare commodity is the only solution. There are factors in agriculture which may not be clarified with a potential distribution, though there have been made several efforts to consider risk in agriculture economical models, but it will be possible to do so when there is established is compiled mathematical relation. On the other hand, in many of the third world countries, the limited capital and available agriculture entries may limit the farmers available options. Hence, it is required in these countries to apply precise analytical tools, so that not only the plans made as per the current realities may be chosen, but also the policies which consider the recommended social objectives may become possible. In these countries, the general problem of lack of statistical data requires that the programming models are designed so that they are mean in using such data. This study tries to use a modern method for Dasht Naz of Sari in different states from the respective productivity (here normal linear programming program) to achieve the shadow price of water. The water economical value (water shadow price) in summer is Rls 1030. This parameter for spring and autumn becomes zero. The LIndo6 software package has been used for this study.
