Abstract

This study considers a water marketing system in which farmers can buy a given amount of water, at a fixed price, and sell the amount not used. The system could induce farmers to upgrade their irrigation systems and reduce water application and drainage volume, while paying for drainage water disposal and maintaining profitability.
