The Grand Tour host Jeremy Clarkson, 60, recently came across a problem on his Diddly Squat Farm in Oxfordshire after he inserted a pump down to 300ft to see the water deep below his land. However, the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire presenter went into detail about the "residue" that he discovered afterwards.
All the crops were covered in a weird white residue
It comes after Jeremy mentioned the fact that underneath most land, you will find "lakes" of water.
The TV host explained that he was so intrigued by the fact, he decided to divulge into the idea and see what he would find at home.
Jeremy recalled what he found after he sank a borehole on his farm this year.
"The drill went down 300ft. A pump was inserted. And out came ... well, it’s tricky to say what exactly," he said.

"It looked like water and it smelt like water, which is to say it smelt of nothing at all."
He added: "But after just two months the irrigation system in the fields jammed up, all the crops were covered in a weird white residue and at home the dishwasher, washing machine and shower all ground to a halt."
Jeremy revealed he ran "tests" to find where the "white residue" came from, which he described as "far beyond legal limits".
"Tests revealed that the borehole was delivering a curious and possibly lethal cocktail of manganese, sodium and sulphates," he wrote.
