  • All available water analysis reports in pdf

  • Quality data of the analysed water 

  • Flemish farmers or horticulturalists

  • Interesting in the context of specifications and advice on application possibilities of the water available on the farm

Which data?

This API gives you all available water analysis reports in pdf per farmer. The report contains, besides the water type and sampling date, quality data of the analysed water:

  • Number of Coliforms
  • Number of E.Coli
  • Total aerobic colony count
  • Nitraten
  • Nitrieten
  • Total hardness

Water analyses are often carried out as part of specifications. But the data are certainly also useful for customised advice on the application possibilities of the water available on the farm.

The analysis reports are linked to the farmer's CBE number.

An API with comparable information has also been made available by the lab of DGZ and Inagro. By combining these 3 labs, the user can get the most complete picture possible of the water quality from various sources on a farm.
