1. Use of chlorinated treated water for agriculture.

Dear Mr.Nikhade,

Can you clarify what you mean by " chlorinated treated water"? Does the treatment consist of just chlorination,or, is it treated sewage which is widely reffered to as " treated water" which is normally chlorinated as a part of tertiary treatment in a Sewage treatment plant?

Chorine is a powerful disinfectant and reducing agent.I would not advise you to use it in agriculture.

If you answer my first question I could give you more specific replies.

2. Use of chlorinated treated water for agriculture.

Dear Mr.Nikhade,

I refer to my reply submitted on 22nd May.I wanted to correct an error.Chlorine is a powerful disinfectant and a oxidising agent, not a reducing agent. I regret the error.
