Choo Valley is a zone of developed irrigated agriculture due to favorable soil and climatic conditions. The valley encompasses one third of the national irrigated area. Regarding water resources, in spring, there is shortage of water in case of low precipitation, especially in mountain sources. The irrigation sources are characterized by wide variations of water flows in terms of season and during a day.
Choo Water Management Organization controls 8 district (rayon) water management divisions and 17 hydro-sites. With the help of its lower organizations, ChBWMO diverts and supplies water and controls its use, as well as regulates inter-rayon and inter-republic distribution of water among sources in the Chooy river basin.
Choo BWMO supplies irrigation water to 319.7 thousand hectares of irrigated land. The state irrigation fund under responsibility of Choo BWMO is comprised of 1548 km of inter-farm canals, 2057 hydraulic structures, 1179 gauging stations, 1 pump station, 804 km of collector-drainage network, 26 reservoirs with a useful capacity of 184 Mm3, and 28 daily and decade runoff ponds, with the useful capacity of 35.15 Mm3.

At present, out of 319.7 thousand ha of the Choo province’s irrigated area:
