SUMMARY: The purpose of this paper is to outline and adapt Sharpe's model to the agricultural activities as well as to measure the performance of crops when yield and risk are considered. The model is applied to the main varieties of citrus fruits in Valencia. For them, systematic and specific risks are measured and the yield índex elasticities are quantified. Applying performance rates, we determine the economic yields of citrus varieties in the 1985-1997 period. In the same way, we focus on its management based on the previously outlines criteria. Key Words: Risk, performance, crops programming RESUMEN: En este trabajo se presenta el modelo de Sharpe adaptado al campo de la producción agraria así como los métodos de medida de los resultados económicos de los cultivos cuando se consideran rentabilidad y riesgo. El modelo se ha aplicado a las principales variedades de cítricos en la Comunidad Valenciana. Para ellas se cuantifica la importancia del riesgo de los rendimientos, descomponiendo el riesgo total en riesgo sistemático y específico. Mediante la aplicación de los índices de resultados se determina el rendimiento de las variedades de cítricos en el período 1985-1997. De la misma forma se procede a una ordenación de las mismas en base a los criterios anteriormente expuestos.
