Abstract: Water is an important natural resource on the surface of earth. Approximately 70% of the water is utilized in the agricultural sectors. Yamuna River having a total drainage area of 366,220 sq Kilometer’s is now highly prone to pollution causing a major threat to the water quality. The present investigation was carried at Sam Higginbottom University of agriculture technology and sciences in the department of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry lab. In this study, a total of 24 water samples were collected on 01 November 2020 in Chaka block of Prayagraj district and from each village 3 water samples were collected and analyzed for their primary and secondary irrigation water quality parameters by using standard laboratory techniques. Through this, the results stated that pH is in the range of 6.22-7.34 with mean valve 6.74, EC in the range of 0.61-1.13 dS m-1 with mean valve 0.83, and Irrigation water quality index was in the range of 107.6-177.8, where 100% of the water samples are in poor condition. These analyses concluded that still, improvement has to be done to improve irrigation water quality.
