Water quality standards for irrigation are crucial to ensure the safety of cultivated land, groundwater and agricultural products. The comparative study in Sino-Australia was conducted based on the specific requirements of Standards for Irrigation Water Quality (GB 5084-2021) and Guidelines for Irrigation Water Quality (1992) in terms of general indicators, inorganic toxic pollutants, organic toxic contaminations and radioactivity indexes, following the review of irrigation water quality standards development history. On the basis of the results, it was found that more attention has been paid to the biological and organic parameters in China, and control levels varying with the crop classifications as well; in contrast, Australia has set more stringent limits on heavy metals and radionuclide indices. In addition, the reasons for discrepancies in both countries have been further discussed. Consequently, the mutual improvement and reference related to the revision of irrigation water quality standards or guidelines can be provided in China and Australia.
