FAS offers a comprehensive analytical package for irrigation water. Also included in reports are interpretive guidelines on water quality.
It is important to test whether your source of irrigation water is suitable since high levels of dissolved salts and ionic imbalances may lower water quality. Ongoing monitoring of water quality is of importance in ensuring the sustainability of irrigation schemes. Accumulation of salts in the soil as a result of the use of poor quality irrigation water may give rise to saline and/ or sodic conditions which greatly reduce the production potential of land.
