Résumé
The crop-water production function for Al Qasseem province, Saudia Arabia was constructed according to the data collected from Al Qasseem province to conserve and face the scarcity of water in that part of the world in agricultural development. Comparison of the growing conditions between Yuma and Al Qasseem has been studied to adapt a model developed for Yuma. Farm budget also constructed to estimate the optimum level of yield gives a profitable income associated with reduced level of water applied. A conclusion of water reduction by 20% of the maximum water applied will conserve the groundwater resource, and optimum level of wheat yield will be obtained under 80% of maximum water applied, also cutting the subsidy to SR 1.5 per Kg will be affordable to the farmers.
