Abstract:
The ground water quality of Agricultural Research Farms, Killikulam was assessed to test its suitability for irrigation. Eleven ground water samples were collected from different blocks of Agricultural College and Research Institute, Killikulam and analysed for various water quality characteristics. The suitability of ground water for irrigation purpose was evaluated based on conductivity, salinity, Sodium Adsorption Ration (SAR), Residual Sodium Carbonate (RSC). The study, as per the standards prescribed by CGWB and CPCB, revealed that 90% of test samples from Agricultural Research Farms, Killikulam is suitable for irrigation.
