Application of Wastewater in Agriculture
Keywords:Climate change, Pollutant load, Sewage, Soil health
Water is a prime factor for development of civilization and feed the living creatures on the Earth. The global water scenario highlights that the vast majority, approximately 97.5% of the world's water is saline and unsuitable for human use. Only a small fraction, merely 2.5%, constitutes fresh water that can be safely consumed. India is also facing the impact of water scarcity, with declining water levels in many regions. The situation is particularly challenging in states like Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, part of Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra, where fresh water shortages are being confronted. As a result, the availability of good quality water is decreasing over time, leading to an increased reliance on marginal quality water for various activities, especially in agriculture. To address these water challenges, it is crucial to promote sustainable water management practices, efficient use of water resources and the adoption of technologies for treating and recycling wastewater.
