In the field experiment, radish was grown in the spring cycle and was watered with two types of water. Tap water (control) and structured water were used for irrigation. The use of structured water for radish irrigation contributed significantly to increase the yield in radish roots compared to the tap water. Radish watered with structured water contained more photosynthetic pigments and carotenoids compared to the control. The vitamin C content in radish leaves and roots was higher when tap water was used for irrigation, while nitrates level was lower after structured water using. The use of different types of water for radish watering had no significant effect on the concentration of minerals in the roots. The research confirmed the beneficial effect of structured water on the yield and the quality of the radish and revealed the possibility of using it for plants irrigation.
