Resumen

The technification of irrigation improves the productivity of food and raw matter for the industry, so in the face of environmental and economic changes, civilizations have generated technologies that allow the access, conduction, distribution and application of water in production units, however, the technification has concentrated only on improving the infrastructure, while irrigation for the Andean communities in Ecuador is a system that is interrelated with nature, community and infrastructure. Thus, the objective was to determine the influence of technification of irrigation on the change of production and efficient use of water in agriculture. The data were collected using interviews and dialogs with focus groups was found to since the agrarian reform change the methods of irrigation, from gravity to sprinkler and drip, where investments are made by the State, non-governmental organizations, and water users, it was also found that rose cultivation uses drip and presented the highest physical and economic efficiency with a productivity of 7.67 USD/m3, different from the production of pasture that uses sprinkler reaching 0.12 USD/m3. The technification of community irrigation concentrated in the pressurization of water using the spray and drip method causing changes in the production and increasing the efficiency of water use.
