The use of contaminated water for agricultural purposes is a major issue in South Africa. While most of the water in first-world countries is relatively clean, this doesn’t ring true in developing countries, like South Africa.
The most concerning source of agricultural water pollution is soil that is washed off into the fields. Rainwater carries soil sediment and ends up in nearby lakes or streams. Too much sediment can cause high turbidity in the water; thereby reducing the amount of sunlight that reaches aquatic life forms.
The water can also be contaminated from the disposal of industrial, agricultural, or private waste into rivers, lakes, or other water systems. This can cause reduced output of the crops due to chemicals and harmful elements like heavy metals.
