Measuring Water Quality for Agriculture
There is major concern about the health of our freshwater rivers and the role of intensive agriculture in climate change. Nitrogen can enter waterways as bought-in feed or as nitrogenous fertiliser.
Government regulations are changing around how agricultural activities impact rivers, lakes and streams, meaning water health monitoring is essential.
An increased amount of sediment, nitrogen and other pollutants can lead to poor water quality and low biodiversity. By monitoring water quality fluctuations in real-time we can understand the waters and make changes to prevent degradation.
