Waterquality criteria for agricultural water use

P.E. Rijtema

    Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


    Since this document is concerned with waterquality criteria for agricultural purposes the crop is perhaps the most important factor to be considered. The evaluation of a water must be based on the tolerance of a specific crop or crops in relation to the soluble salt content or specific ion concentration. Plants vary considerably in their tolerance to water quality constituents. In addition to differences between species and varieties, there are often also differences in tolerance according to the stage of growth.
