Water Flowing from Faucet

Nothing is more essential to a crop’s growth than proper irrigation. Yet many people often overlook the importance of the water source they for their agricultural irrigation. With more and more significance being placed on growing crops with fresh, pure water, now is a better time than ever to reexamine how your irrigation’s water source is affecting your crops.

Water Contamination and Health Concerns

Crops that are irrigated with contaminated water are one of the leading agricultural health concerns today. The most difficult part of this problem is determining the quality of your water. Livestock farms upstream of your water source may be leaching deadly bacteria in the water, and even water from an isolated pond or well can become contaminated. Not only can contaminated water stunt the growth of your plants, it can also lead to some serious health concerns for anyone that consumes the crops.
