The present investigation was undertaken at Jain Valley and Jain Plastic Park, Jain Irrigation System Limited, at Jalgaon (M.S.), on application of treated waste water in agriculture through drip irrigation by evaluating treated and untreated waste water analysis, suitability of emitter flow path for treated waste water and field evaluation of irrigation system using treated waste water from food processing plant. Tomato (Lycopersicum esculentum) crop was grown during 2013-2014 and two different types of emitters were selected to know its performance under different water treatments. Study on emitter flow path for industrial waste water from food processing plant showed non pressure compensating emitters B2.0 (L 18 mm, W 0.8 mm, D 0.84 mm) and pressure compensating emitters performance of C2.0 (L 45.4 mm), W 0.92 mm, D 1.04 mm) as the best combination after clogging test. Irrigation system evaluation for industrial waste water from food processing plant showed distribution uniformity of C2.0 emitter was better than B2.0.
