Effects of gypsum on five tropical grasses grown in normal and extremely sodic soil



Effects of gypsum on five tropical grasses grown in normal and extremely sodic soil



Experimental Agriculture 19(2): 169-177



In a field study in 1979-80 in Karnal district, Haryana the effects of 0, 5.2 and 10.4 t gypsum/ha on the performance of Rhodes grass, blue panic grass (Panicum antidotale), Panicum laevifolium, Karnal grass (Diplachne fusca) and Bermuda grass Coastal on an extremely sodic soil were investigated. The soils used had a large exchangeable sodium concentration and pH in the top 15 cm (94% and 10.6, resp.). For comparison, the same grasses were also grown in a normal soil.
