For each one of there alternatives, Present Value, Internal Rate of Return, the Rate Interns of Return Modified and the Payback Period, being made the risk simulations were performed using the Latin Hypercube method. Results showed that the alternatives of production white irrigated were economically superior to the alternatives without no-irrigated, even in traditional producers areas, as the municipal district of Viçosa-MG.
