Providing appropriate solutions for the management of water productivity and consumption of sugarcane crop production requires a thorough understanding of the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats of the crop production system. In this regard, the present study seeks to strategically analyze the water productivity management of sugarcane crop production in Khuzestan province with emphasis on its strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. Research methodology is classified into descriptive and analytical methods in which questionnaire-based surveys, interviews and SWOT analytical tools are used to identify and analyze the strategic factors of internal environment (strengths and weaknesses) and external environment (opportunities and threats). Sugar cane experts are used. According to the results of the study, mechanization of sugarcane cultivation and production pattern with 0.862 final weight was identified as the most important strength. Inadequate awareness of irrigation workers about water, soil and plant issues with a final score of 0.744 with the most significant weakness, the existence of researchers and specialists in the sugar cane production industry with a final weight of 0.864, the most important opportunity and inappropriate utilization management with a final score of 0.555 to They were identified as the most important threat. In addition, competitive strategy with final weight of internal factors of 2.745 and external weight of external factors of 3.104 has been adopted as the most important strategy in the management of water input productivity in sugarcane production in Khuzestan province.
