Abstract

Ponds are considered to be the traditional water resource for irrigational purpose in India. Kanyakumari district is blessed with many perennial ponds. But many of these are being polluted drastically due to the increased human population and rapid industrialization. So in this study, the pond water samples one each from four taluks of Kanyakumari district were chosen and analyzed on their suitability for irrigation purpose based on the values of Sodium Hazard(EC), Sodium Adsorption Ratio(SAR), Residual Sodium Carbonate(RSC), Magnesium Hazard (MH), Sodium Percent(%Na), Total Hardness(TH) and Total Dissolved Solids(TDS). Finally the results predicted their suitability for irrigation purpose.
