Resumo: Irrigation is economically important in many regions of Mediterranean Europe such as the Portuguese region of Alentejo. The new Water Law proposed by the European Commission, pointing out that water management might be based on the principle of payment by users. These issues have some effect on the cost pattern of the farmers, when considering the water cost. However, the implementation of water tariff policies can provide a very important policy instrument, in order to promote an efficient use of water in agricultural sector as well as to avoid, at least partially, the loss of farm incomes. The main objective of this study is to evaluate the effects of alternative policies of water price for agriculture use in the farm income and the production pattern, having in account the recovery of the public investment and the operating costs with irrigation infrastructures. The methodology used is based, on the one hand, on the estimate of farm water demand and, on the other hand on the determination of the investment and on the current costs of the irrigation infrastructures. This study was applied to irrigated areas of Odivelas, in the South of Portugal
