Sde Trumot (Hebrew: שְׂדֵי תְרוּמוֹת) is a moshav in northern Israel. Located in the Beit She'an Valley about 7 km (4 mi) south of Beit She'an, it falls under the jurisdiction of Valley of Springs Regional Council. In 2015 it had a population of 433.
The village founded in 1951 by immigrants from the Jewish village of Sandur in Iraqi Kurdistan. The name "Sde Trumot" is based on the lamentation of David for Saul and Jonathan who were killed in a war against the Philistines on the nearby Mount Gilboa. The lamentation is recorded in the first chapter of Samuel II. The words "Sde Trumot", meaning "fields of offerings" (of grain), appear in Samuel II, chapter 1, verse 21. The new settlers wanted to restore these fruitful fields of grain offerings.
The original inhabitants of the settlement worked in agriculture and cattle raising. Today some of them perform modern agriculture using greenhouses and other technology.
