Drip irrigation is a method of providing water with a low flow rate. The drip irrigation system can savewater usage, because it can minimize water losses that may occur. The use of drip irrigation systems needsto be considered from a financial analysis point of view. Financial analysis is one of the aspects used inassessing the investment plan of a development. There are several investment criteria that can be used inproject evaluation, including Net Present Value (NPV), Net Benefit Cost Ratio (Net B/C), IRR, and BEP.Based on the description above, it will raise important issues that will become the details of the problem,namely to provide an assessment of the economic efficiency of operations and maintenance of the dripirrigation system. The results of the drip irrigation project research show that it is feasible to run based oninvestment criteria. The results of the NPV calculation are Rp. 74,293,523.47. The result of IRR calculation is36.53%. The result of the calculation of Net B/C is 1.75. The calculation result of BEP is 547.7 kg/year, whilethe rupiah BEP is Rp. 24,902.15/kg. The results of the feasibility and sensitivity test gives a conclusion thatthe application of drip irrigation is feasible for the owner farmers, especially the scavenger farmers inPandanrejo Village.
