Saline and alkali soils of the Indian Gangetic alluvium in Uttar Pradesh



Saline and alkali soils of the Indian Gangetic alluvium in Uttar Pradesh



J. Soil Sci 5: 300-306



The main source of soluble salts in these soils seems to be the weathering of minerals and subsequent transport and accumulation in groundwaters. These soils occur in low- lying pockets where the groundwater is high or there is poor. internal drainage due to an indurated clay pan or a cemented lime-carbonate nodule pan. The soils are of very high pH and gypsum is almost completely absent.
