Trickle irrigation experiments with two qualities of mixtures of reservoir effluents and stormwater, were conducted in a 1-yr research project at two kibbutzim (communal farms) in the Jezreel Israel. Various Israel methods and degrees of filtration were examined and then related to the effluent quality, as well as the degree of emitter clogging along the laterals. Tentative conclusions and ways to improve the filtration and irrigation efficiency of the effluent and stormwater mixtures have been reached after one irrigation season.
