Description

This paper determines the influence of lime and gypsum on the rehabilitation of a degraded sodic soil in a semi-arid environment 12 years after application.

An experimental site was used where lime and gypsum combinations (L0G0, lime 0tha-1 and gypsum 0tha-1; L0G1, L0G2.5, L0G5, L1G0, L2.5G0, L5G0, L1G1, L2.5G1) had been applied 12 years prior, in 1994. An earlier study had...[Show more]
