The research aimed to study the effect of the characteristics of water in two villages that are (AL Dhowaihiriya) and (Fida) on the growth of radish plant in order to answer the following questions:
1- What is the best water sample to grow radish plant?
2- Who do the two water samples effect the characteristics of the growth of radish plant?
3- How does the characteristics of soil, which the radish grow on, got affected with the type of water that it is watered with?
This research was applied in Willayat Dhank. Two samples of water were taken from two different sites and were used to water radish plant, and comparing the growth rates with watering radish with the two samples through the application of the ground cover protocol. In addition, soil and water protocol has also been applied to measure the conductivity, salinity and acidity properties of water and soil samples. They were from different locations, one from the village of (Al-Dhowaihiriya) and the other one is from the village of (Fida). Furthermore, comparing the characteristics of the soil before planting radish and after watering it with the first and second water samples.
The results of the research indicated that the sample of the water of Fida village is more effective than the water sample of the village of Al-Dhowaihiriya. Because the plant which was watered with a sample of (Fida) village water recorded the highest growth rates (6.6 cm, within four weeks) compared to the rate of growth (5.2 cm) , Within four weeks) of the radish, which is watered by a sample of water from the village of Al-Dhowaihiriya. In addition, fewer values were found in the properties of conductivity, acidity and salinity on soil with the plant watered by a sample of Fida village water compared to the plant watered by a sample of (Al-Dhowaihiriya) village water.
