The degradation of water quality in Tunisia is mainly due to the overexploitation of groundwater, pollution and especially mismanagement in the different areas. Magnetic treatment methods can be used in the field of agriculture to alleviate salinity problems of irrigation. It is clear that the magnetic device influences the characteristics of limestone. On the other hand, there is variation in the physico-chemical characteristics of water which improves productivity and crop performance. The performance of irrigation by magnetized water is greater than irrigation by raw water. In this context, we examine the existence of the beneficial effects of the magnetic treatment of irrigation water on its quality and on the yield of the melon culture. As a result, a permanent magnet apparatus (Magneteau) installed on the irrigation line was used. The application of a magnetic field showed an influence on the water parameters, decreasing its electrical conductivity (EC) by 5.2% and increasing its pH by 5.6%. In addition, the effect of this magnetic device showed an increase in melon cultivation of 39%. Statistical analysis showed that our experimental results are very significant.

Keywords: Magnetic device, Irrigation water, Culture of Melon, Statistical analysis.
