  • Alkali soil

    Alkali, or Alkaline, soils are clay soils with high pH (>85), a poor soil structure and a low infiltration capacity Often they have a hard calcareous layer at 05 to 1 metre depth Alkali soils owe their unfavorable physico-chemical properties mainly to the dominating presence of sodium carbonate, which causes the soil to swell and difficult to clarify/settle...

    Feb 03, 2015· If you have ever wondered how to use a Bluelab pH meter to test the pH level of your soil plant check out this video as we show you how to test and adjust your levels You can get all of the ....

  • Managing Soil Salinity

    If the water cannot infiltrate the soil, the salts cannot be dissolved and leached out of the soil Reducing evaporation: Applying residue or mulch to the soil can help lower evaporation rat Chemical treatments: Before leaching saline-sodic and sodic soils, you must first treat them with chemicals, to reduce the exchangeable sodium content ....

  • Saline and Sodic Soils

    and Sodic Soils, Kansas State University, 1992) For taxonomic purposes, a soil will be interpreted as sodic if it has an Exchangeable Sodium Percentage of 15 or more or have Sodium Adsorption Ratio of 13 or more Sodic soils often have a pH level of 85 or more in carbonate-rich soils, such as in northeastern North Dakota....

  • Managing Highly Alkaline Irrigation Water

    Managing Highly Alkaline Irrigation Water By Fred Hulme , These fertilizers have a higher content of ammoniacal (NH4+) and urea-based nitrogen, and their use may not always be desirable depending on crop stage and time of year as high NH4+ nitrogen can lead to lush soft growth , It can be complicated to mix, corrode equipment, require the ....

  • Understanding Soil pH

    Gypsum (calcium sulphate) does not alter the pH of the soil but can improve aeration and reduce compaction in a clay soil The texture of the soil eg clay or sand and the amount of organic matter present will affect the quantity of material needed to alter the pH Clay soils need a much greater amount of lime to shift the pH than sandy soils...
