Abstract: 

Some inputs in agricultural products are quasi-fixed in nature, and there is no defined market for them. These input prices are not determined in the market. So there is not a suitable and efficient price for them. One of these inputs in Iran is water. Water is the limited and important in Iranian agricultural sector that exist no defined market for it. At these times, we can use from non-market methods for determining the economic value (real price) of water. The main objective of this study was to determine the economic value of irrigation water used in some of staple crops (wheat and onion), in the Maragheh- Bonab Plain using flexible production functions approach. The results of this study indicate that the economic value of water used in wheat and onion production are almost 248 and 291 Rials per cubic meter, respectively. The estimated prices are much higher than local prices of these inputs.
