Regarding the importance of water and lack of water resources in the country, the use of available water resources is one of the most important strategies for the optimal use of water resources in the agricultural sector. Using irrigation systems under pressure and principled management can be an effective step in saving water reserves. Also, the quantitative and qualitative crisis of resources necessitates the use of new irrigation systems. Therefore, qualitative identification of the water resources of the area in question, planning and prioritizing suitable areas of these irrigation methods seems necessary. In this research, using the land statistics methods, the zoning of each parameter in accordance with the FAO water quality standard No. 29 was studied and the degree of limitation of each factor for the water resources of the desert salt basin was presented. Then, the qualitative water quality map was carried out using a combination of zoning traits. Finally, it was shown that 66% of the agricultural land in the basin is unrestricted and with limited constraints and 34% on the floor with a high constraint.
