The main aim of this paper is to evaluate the economic response of different irrigation water levels in an early ripening peach variety. In this sense, we evaluate the economics and overall water use efficiency. The test is designed with 4 irrigation water strategies. The economic indices used that use net margin show that all the alternatives are viable although the control with its Net Margin NM-Cost C of 23.6% is of particular note. This is followed by R50, the highest deficit treatment, with anNM-C of 16.0%. The mean production cost was almost identical in the optimal treatment control and the R50 deficit treatment, €0.69 and €0.70, respectively. R50 was the most efficient treatment, with a Water Use Efficiency WUE of 5.54 kg·m-3. The NM m-3 as economic efficiency index was the greatest in the control 0.74 € m-3, followed by R50 0.65 € m-3, while the other treatments were far from these figures. Peach cultivation generates a lot of employment and in all cases the Number of Agricultural Jobs NAJ ha-1 was around 0.59. As regards the social efficiency of water, the deficit treatments we applied reached high values in this respect, reaching 181 NAJ hm-3 in R50.
