Problematic Soils And Their Management

Abhay Kumar (Author) Asha Kumari Sinha (Author)

The soils which possess characteristics that make them uneconomical for the cultivation of crops without adopting proper reclamation measures are known as problem soils. For the management of problematic soils, some general principles have to be considered for proper implementation of the reclamation measures. Some soils have serious physical and chemical limitations to cultivation. Physical limitations can be managed by irrigation, drainage, mulching, manuring, tillage, and soil conservation measures such as terracing, contouring, and cover crops, whichever is appropriate. Some chemicals are also added to the soil as an integral part of the reclamation program adopted to improve the saline, alkali and other soils.
