All experts agree that the irrigation water sample should be analyzed as soon as the sample is drawn, preferably on the same day because the physical, chemical and bacteriological changes that take place with time can give misleading analysis results, which may not be representative of the water at site.
Presently, Water Testing Laboratories are mostly located in big cities, quite away from farmers. Hence, it takes one or two days for farmers to reach the water sample to the distant laboratory for analysis. Depending on the other priorities in the Laboratories, if analysis is delayed for few days, the whole purpose of analysis is defeated.
Testing of Irrigation water at site itself immediately with the help of “Irrigation Water Testing Kits,” therefore, becomes very important.
Following parameters of Irrigation water can be analyzed using the Kit.
No. of Water Samples tested with Kit – 100 Nos.
