This study evaluates the performance of five categories of irrigated areas of the Telagasari Irrigation Scheme (TIS) in Indonesia for the period 2007-2011 by using a set of twelve indicators representing irrigation performances in terms of service delivery, finance, and production efficiency. The quality of irrigation at farm level was also evaluated using a set of structured questionnaires focusing on four aspects of service: equity, reliability, flexibility, and adequacy. The results indicate that most areas in all five categories receive enough irrigation to meet crop water demand. Efficiency was measured as the standardised gross value of production (SGVP) per unit of water consumed, and decreased from 2008-2011 as a result of reduced world rice prices. The service quality of irrigation decreases downstream; the highest being in category area I and the lowest in V. Such evaluation helps to determine the degree of influence of various factors on irrigation management, and supports the decision making process towards improved irrigation performance.
