Irrigation waters contain some amount of dissolved materials or “salts”. These dissolved materials come from the weathering or break down of soil minerals. They dissolve and find their way into surface groundwater. The amount and kind of these dissolved materials affect the suitability of water for irrigation. By analyzing the nutrient content of the water applied through the pivots and flood irrigation, fertilizer applications can be adjusted to decrease output and increase your profit.
