The Water Use Advice Service Irrigation Advisory Service (SAR) are certainly one of the most interesting tools to make the irrigation a sustainable activity, when having as main purpose the improvement in the efficiency in the use and the integral administration of the irrigation water. In Cuba, the irrigation and the drainage are indispensable to have quality productions, for that reason we cannot give up their execution. On the other hand, the massive irrigation mechanization by means of the extension of the central pivot machines and other, although they achieve high productivities of areas irrigated by man, they generally show signs of little agricultural effectiveness and low efficiency in the use of the water that are related to their incorrect use and the ignorance in the way of operating these technologies. One way to improve this situation is through the SAR, our country seeks to put into operation this service regarding it already have some experiences, those that are propitiating a knowledge and information flow. The present work has as objective to provide some information on the Cuban experiences during its creation, the information is completed with the obtained results and some considerations are given to keep in mind for its future operation.
