Abstract: Field experiment was carried out to study the response of date palm tree, of Seleg cultivar, to different water regimes (50%E, 100%E & 150%E), using three irrigation methods, namely: basin, bubbler and trickle irrigation systems. The study was conducted during four successive years (1991 through 1994). It involves the monitoring of crop water use and the response of date palm tree to the different irrigation methods. The results have demonstrated the general trend of yield increase as irrigation quantity increased. The maximum yield was produced from palm trees irrigated with trickle irrigation system followed by basin method. The water use efficiency was found to be maximum for trickle irrigated plots followed by the basin plots.
