It is very important to do an appropriate research before using water sources for irrigation purposes, and take samples of water to determine its suitability for irrigation. Particular attention should be paid to the quality of irrigation water intended for crops to be planted in the farm. As such, water containing a certain amount of salt is considered favorable for some plants. However, you can observe re-salinization if salt contained in the water is much higher than the normal amount. 

The permissible limit of salt in irrigation water in our country is 1-1,5 g/l. The use of weakly alkaline contained water for irrigation will not give good results. For example, soda contained water affects the physical and chemical properties of soil, and reduces its fertility. Analysis of water will also allow determining the amount of dependent impurities in it. This affects the choice of filters used in advanced irrigation and allows reducing additional costs.

It is also important to determine the temperature of irrigation water. As such, irrigation with cold water has a negative impact on growth of plants. Therefore, if it is necessary to irrigate with such water, the water can be used for irrigation after being pre-heated in special pools for a certain period of time. Considering the said factors once again proves the importance of irrigation water analysis.
