The main purpose of this study is investigation of hydraulic properties in drip irrigation tape. In this study, 10 types of drip irrigation tape were tested, and the effect of 4 temperatures of water, 13, 23, 33 and 43 °C, was investigated according to the standard ISO 9261 and ISO IRISI. Initially all experiments were performed in standard temperature (23°C) in order to obtain qualitative evaluation indexes of tapes. The results obtained were as follows: According to the Cv, 8 models of tapes were ranked as good and 2 models as medium. According to the difference between the actual and nominal flow rates, 3 models were ranked as good, 3 models as medium, 3 models were acceptable and 2 models were unacceptable. According to the EU, 9 models were ranked as excellent and T3 was ranked as good. According to the UC, UC of all models was more than 70% and their flow rate variation follows normal distribution. According to qvar, flow rate changes in 3 models were acceptable, 2 models were ranked as good and 5 models were unacceptable.
