Soil samples were taken from depths 0-15, 15-30 and 30-40 cm and were collected from 10 small scale farms, in which 5 farms used surface water while the other 5 farms used ground water for irrigation. Six water samples were collected during dry and wet seasons, three from surface sources (dams) and the other three from sub-surface normal wells. The sampled soil and water were analyzed for various parameters in the laboratory. Using the questionnaire, fifty six small garden holders (10%)were interviewed randomly.
