To find out impact of agricultural practices on ground water quality, ground water samples were collected from five villages around Ladpura tehsil, situated in Kota district and analyzed during year 2008 to 2010. Some important physicochemical parameters like pH, total dissolved solids, alkalinity, total hardness, sulphate, chloride, nitrate, phosphate were analyzed and results were compared with water quality standards prescribed by WHO and BIS 10500. Data reveals that all the water samples showed not too much higher values which indicates that water is not polluted. The correlation coefficients were calculated. The significance of result is further discussed.
