In-Depth Agricultural Well Water Guide

An agricultural well is a private well that’s used specifically for agricultural purposes.

Like domestic water wells, agricultural wells are drilled into the ground (the depth of the well depends on the location of the aquifer), and have a diameter of about 6 inches.

The water pumped from an agricultural well may be used to irrigate crops or land, or supply water to livestock. It can also be used to water lawns and yards.

You would benefit from an agricultural well if you have a farm and you currently use municipal water or transport water from a surface water source, and you want a more convenient, cost-effective solution for accessing water on-site.
