El trabajo analiza tres soluciones de equilibrio de un juego dinámico, en tiempo discreto, entre dos agricultores para determinar distintas formas de distribuir el agua de una fuente cuyo utilización no es exclusivamente agrícola. Desde cada solución, planteamos un juego estático entre los dos agricultores, siendo el espacio de estrategias los objetivos de consumo de los agricultores en cada campaña de riego. Estos juegos se utilizan para construir un superjuego de estructura temporal dependiente al reflejar los pagos del juego, que se repite un número finito o infinito de campañas de riego, la rotación de cultivos. El objetivo de este trabajo es estudiar si existe un equilibrio perfecto en los subjuegos para los superjuegos planteados. The paper analyses three equilibrium solutions of a dynamic game, in discrete time, between two farmers to determine different forms of distribution of the water from a source whose utilisation is not exclusively agricultural. From each solution, we outline a static game between both farmers being the strategies space the consumption objectives in each irrigation campaign. These games are utilised to build a supergame of dependent temporary structure since the outcome of the game that is repeated, an infinite or finite of irrigation campaigns, takes into account the cultivation rotation. The study whether the supergame admits a perfect equilibrium, in pure strategies, is the last objective that this paper pursues.
