Tnuvot (Hebrew: תְּנוּבוֹת, lit. Crops) is a moshav in central Israel. Located in the Sharon plain between Netanya and Tulkarm, it falls under the jurisdiction of Lev HaSharon Regional Council. In December 2008 it had a population of 744.

The village was founded in 1952 by Jewish immigrants from Yemen.

The name of the village is symbolic for its agricultural base and was taken from the bible by the verse : "He made him ride on the high places of the earth, and he did eat the fruitage of the field; and He made him to suck honey out of the crag, and oil out of the flinty rock" (Deuteronomy 32,13).

In the village region there is historical ancient site with mosaic from the Romans Byzantine era, called "Tel Shevah".

A landing strip for ultralight aviation named after the village is located nearby.
