The lack of irrigation is one of the most critical problems for farming in arid regions characterized by high temperatures and a lack of rains. In this paper, an intelligent automatic irrigation system is studied in order to optimize water consumption, with a particular context that aims to find the best economic optimization between automatic system and manual operations. More especially, the used criteria concern the cost of equipment, water saving, balance between manual and automatic tasks, equipment safety and adaptation to local technical skills.
