Abstract:

The present study has been carried out to estimate nitrate content level in water collected from different sources. Approximately, 925 water samples in different sources were collected from Karur districts comprising 8 taluk and selected 4 villages. The nitrate was analyzed from collected water samples by using kit method. The nitrate level analysis is estimated based on the reactions involving acetic acid and Bray’s indicator as the coupling agents. The Nitrate level was determined from collected 925 water samples showed that 42.8% samples had 10-50PPM, 31.7% had 51-100 PPM, 1.9% had 101-300PPM, 0.01% had above 300PPM and 1.7% had traces of nitrate content respectively. From the result analysis, it has been suggested that water samples below100 PPM of nitrate after storing 1 or 2 days should be suitable for the consumption for the dairy cattle. Hence, Laboratory testing of water and feedstuffs is always recommended so that to prevent the nitrate toxicity incidence in cattle.
