Mango production is one of the world's main agricultural activities. In Brazil it is among the most produced and exported fruits, generating employment and raising millions every year, being the São Francisco Valley the main center of production of this fruit. Through a case study this work aims to characterize and analyze the cost of production and determine the economic and financial efficiency of mango cultivation worked with the irrigation system by surface furrow and located by micro sprinkling, in the Curaçá Project, municipality of Juazeiro - BA. Regarding the cost of production, it showed that from the sixth year, the most expensive segment is the cultural tracts. It was found that mango cultivation is viable and profitable in both systems, but the irrigation system located by micro aspersion, in addition to providing greater water savings, has better indicators of efficiency and economic viability, compared to the surface groove irrigation system. Thus, the use of the irrigation system located by micro sprinkling will provide water savings in times of water scarcity and future scenarios of climate change, as well as greater profitability to producers, thus creating better acceptance of this technology.
