Need Of Agriculture/Irrigation Water Testing Labs In India

Agriculture Water Testing
  • India is an agricultural country with a huge chunk of the population dependent on agriculture to make a living. And for effective and optimal agricultural irrigation an adequate supply of usable quality water is required. In earlier days the quality of water was not of much concern, but with the population increasing and water bodies diminishing the quality of water is taking a toll. And the increasing use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides is also causing water pollution. If the quality of irrigation water is compromised it might end up having a negative effect on the soil and even the crops. The yield will be substantially reduced, and the soil will be eventually ripped off its nutrients and microorganisms. The loss of these nutrients and microorganisms will further lead to a stunted crop.
Agriculture Water Testing
  • It is also important to note that most of these harmful pollutants are not visible to the naked eyes and can’t be analyzed just by looking or smelling the irrigation water. To avoid these problems it is necessary that the agricultural or irrigational water is tested and checked for harmful chemicals and disease-causing pathogens. And to be able to effectively conduct these tests the need for trustworthy and modern laboratories, like the Anacon Labs is warranted.

What Is Agriculture/Irrigation Water Testing

Agriculture Water Testing
  • The usability of irrigation water is primarily determined by the amount and types of salts dissolved in it. These salts dissolve into the irrigation water because of the weathering of rocks such as lime, gypsum, and other minerals. In irrigation, these salts play a vital role as the water will eventually evaporate or be used by the crops, and these salts will be left behind in the soil and alter its composition. Multiple soils and cropping related problems manifest if the salt content in the soils increases beyond a certain level. The quality of the irrigation water is calculated keeping in mind how the salts present in it affect the crop and the soil in the short and the long run.
  • The problems that arise due to the presence of certain salts and chemicals may vary depending on the kind of soil, climate, and even the crop being grown, and that is why these parameters are always considered during testing. Some of the commonly noted problems that affect the usability of irrigation water are pertaining to the salinity of the water, its infiltration rate, and the presence of certain harmful toxins such as sodium, chloride, and boron. And the process of testing the water on these parameters is known as agricultural/irrigational water testing.

Testing Parameters For Agriculture Water
Testing At Anacon laboratories

Anacon Labs use modern techniques and machinery to accurately evaluate the water. Based on the results, the usability of the water for irrigation purposes is determined. The water used for agricultural purposes is tested on parameters such as salinity, presence of sodium, and calcium which determine the water infiltration rate. Certain toxic ions and the presence of excessive yield-reducing nutrients are also tested.
