Studies proved the possibility of improving the quality of irrigation water by using the magnetic water treatment. Generally, this magnetic treatment is conducted by exposing the water to magnetic field for a specified time. In this research, the magnetic treatment with intensity 3000Gauss is merged with vortex effects. The vortex is used to treat water for the first time in the laboratories of the Ministry of Science and Technology in Iraq. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of the vortex magnetic system used to treat saline water, which was collected from two selected wells within the city of Baghdad, and thus determine the possibility of using saline water wells for irrigation purposes. Some physical properties of this water were tested including Electrical Conductivity (EC), Acidic Function (pH), and Dissolved Oxygen (DO). The results of tested properties of treated water in the vortex and magnetic treatments system (VM) were compared with untreated water and that treated only by magnetic treatment system (M). Maximum percentage of increase of EC when using the treatment VM of well number one was 35.3% higher than of the water treated by magnetic field only at the high discharge of 10l/min. The pH values were less affected by the treatment with vortex magnetic system and magnetic system. The large percentage of increase of DO when using the treatment VM of well number one was 33.6% higher than treatment with magnetic field at the lower discharge of 0.2l/min.
