Abstract: 

In order to study of the effects of irrigation methods and different water supply levels on the yield of cucumber, an experiment was conducted in Varamin Agriculture Research Center. The statistical model was a split plot design based on RCBD. The main factor was irrigation methods in three different levels (as Tape in 30cm depth, Tape in surface of soil and surface drip irrigation). The sub factor was different water application levels (as 100, 75 & 50 percent of water requirement). The results indicated that, surface drip irrigation and Tape in 30 cm depth method with 100% water application level and Tape in surface with 75% water application level had the highest yield respectively. There were no significant differences between mean yields. The methods of Tape in depth and Tape in surface with 75% and 50% water application levels had the highest water use efficiency. The results showed that the Tape in surface with 75% water application is the best treatment and it can be recommended to farmers in water scarsity conditions.
