Salination of Soil

In this article we will discuss Salination of Soil

Salination of Soil

Increase in the concentration of soluble salts is called salination. This adversely affects
the quality and productivity of soil. It takes place in two ways: accumulation of salts dissolved in irrigation water on the soil surface due to intensive farming and poor drainage, and deposition of salts as white crust during summer months drawn by capillary action from the lower surface to the top surface.
