Abstract: 
Limitation of water resources in many area of Hamedan province has been caused decreasing the yield and generating some problems for farmers. So, the investigation of irrigation management in farms is necessary for increasing irrigation efficiency and decreasing water losses. The subject of this study was investigation of surface irrigation in potato farms in Hamedan province during the years 2003 - 2005. For this reason, 11 farms in Bahar plain were selected with using of cluster sampling method and were evaluated technically. For determination of water application efficiency, soil moisture (before and after irrigation), root zone and water irrigation were measured. The results showed that range of variations of water application efficiency in farms were remarkable.
The minimum and maximum of water application efficiency was 9.8% and 90.3% respectively. The average of water productivity was 2.6 kg/m3. It was observed that the main reasons for low irrigation efficiency are lack of good irrigation management, not using siphon tubes to convey water into the furrows, and not having irrigation schedual. Integration of fields, adjusting the furrow inflow, and using siphon tubes and gated pipes are the necessary management actions which can be made to increase irrigation efficiency in the area.
