Poor quality of underground irrigation water: In western Rajasthan, India

Prabhoo Singh and KK Sharma
Groundwater quality depends on the nature of recharging water, precipitation, subsurface and surface water. Groundwater tables are depleting at an accelerated rate and the groundwater quality is rotating substandard due to inflated natural processes and unsuitable artificial activities. In this paper gives imminent into the numerous irrigation water quality measures as well as describes the effects of poor quality groundwater on crop production and soil properties. Poor water quality must be managed carefully in arid and semi arid region. One hundred fifty water samples collected from irrigated area of Nagaur district of Rajasthan and revealed that 0.66 per cent water samples were good water, 1.33 per cent were marginally saline, 16.67 per cent were saline, 18 per cent were high SAR saline, 32 per cent were marginally alkali, 20 per cent were alkali and 11.34 were per cent high alkali categories, respectively. Basic criteria for evaluating water quality for irrigation purposes are described, including water Salinity (EC), Sodium hazards (Sodium adsorption ratio), Salt index, Bicarbonate hazard (Residual Sodium Carbonates (RSC), Boron concentration, Chloride concentration, Soluble sodium percentage, Magnesium hazard and ion toxicity.
