Agricultural Water Treatment

Distribution Uniformity

Distribution Uniformity (DU) measures how uniformly water is applied to an irrigated area. Meras has teamed with industry and university experts to develop a unique DU test that will indicate how your micro irrigation system is performing.

Water management is critical to success in agribusiness, especially in arid states such as California and Arizona.

Irrigation water sources commonly contain a high level of contamination, which can ultimately present a challenge for your irrigation system. Reservoirs are exposed to the environment and can create a thriving environment for pathogens and algae. It is common for well water sources to contain very high levels of minerals such as calcium, iron and magnesium. These mineral and biological contaminants can interfere with irrigation system efficiency and impact plant and soil health, food safety and yield.

Meras Water Solutions is a leading provider of irrigation water treatment to help mitigate these issues, as well as agriculture wastewater treatment and recycling solutions recovery. Our innovative agricultural water treatment services and products help farmers contain costs and meet stringent sustainability and food safety guidelines. In addition to water treatment services that improve irrigation performance, our agricultural customers also benefit from our integrated Irrigation Health Plan™, which gives them access to performance data they can use to take quick action on issues as they arise and to optimize irrigation system efficiency and ROI.

We specialize in the following agricultural water treatment services:

Our programs are validated using this unique approach, allowing our growers to stay ahead of potential problems before inefficient water delivery can lead to yield losses. Using our integrated Irrigation Health Plan™ as a system dashboard, growers have performance data showing trends. This allows for informed decision-making and quick action.

A low DU score can lead to:

  • Insufficient nutrient delivery to crops
  • Poor crop quality
  • Overworked pumps
  • Increased labor costs to replace emitters
  • Under/overirrigation of acres
  • Lower yields

Micro Irrigation

Micro irrigation systems are designed to save water and deliver inputs as efficiently as possible to your crops. Irrigation source water, whether surface or well water, always contains some level of contamination, which can affect efficiency in these systems:

  • Under the right conditions, minerals in the water such as calcium and magnesium will form scale in the irrigation system and eventually plug an emitter or micro sprinkler.
  • Similarly, biological contaminants will develop biofilm which not only can plug emitters but also harvest pathogenic organisms that can put your operation at risk.

These problems can be mitigated with proper agriculture water treatment. We can help with irrigation water analysis and treatment solutions that will ensure your micro irrigation system delivers the right amount of water and nutrients to your crops.

Reservoirs & Wells

Meras Water Solutions executes multiphase programs and irrigation water treatment systems that will reduce and control biological growth in reservoirs and micro irrigation system lines without harming aquatic species. Our specialized chemistries are designed to prevent mineral buildup and our acid cleaners can help recover your scaled well system. These irrigation water treatment solutions can significantly improve your system efficiency as well as your bottom line.
