Ground water samples, collected mainly in Kecskemét and its outskirts, were analysed in the laboratory of Faculty of Horticulture (Kecskemét College). Depending on the depth three categories of the sprinkling water samples were formed: 10-30, 31-70 and 71-275 m, respectively. Chemical analysis of 103 water samples showed the decrease in the salt content with deepness (conductivity (EC) decreased from 1116 to 682' 1 in the deepest groundwater samples). It was the result of the decrease primarily in sodium, hydro-carbonate and chloride contents in the samples. Acidity and alkalinity of the samples didn't change with deepness considerably in our samples. The levels of nitrogenous and phosphorous ions were low in almost all water samples. Ferrous, manganese and arsenic content was the highest in the middle deep water region (31-70 m depth). These results may reveal problems in the application of these water sources in agriculture, mainly in growing and irrigation because of high salt concentration, principally thanks to hydro carbonate and metallic ions. Acidic pre-treatment of these irrigation waters seems to be crucial.
