Abstract:
In this study, well and drainage water were mixed at different rates, and treated with varying amounts of H₂SO₄ to determine if drainage water could supplement ground water supplies and if H₂SO₄ would improve the irrigation water quality of the water mixtures. This study showed that adding amounts of H₂SO₄ equivalent to 15 percent of CO₃ + HCO₃ in irrigation water reduced the detrimental effect of salinity on soil properties and plant growth. In such cases H₂SO₄, which is becoming abundant as an industrial by-product, could be an economic aid in reducing adverse effects of excessive levels of exchangeable sodium in irrigated soils.
