  • What kind of "standards" are you looking for? Pipe diameters? Chemicals? Government quotas? For what country? – Nicolas Raoul Oct 9 '14 at 8:37

The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the UN has numerous datasets and papers relating to crop production. This paper 'Water Quality in Agriculture" discusses recommendations in a wide variety of aspects of irrigation. -

The FAO's AQUASTAT datasets cover information on water resources per country:

Within these datasets are data related to waste water treatment for crop production use.
