  • Excessive amounts of salts present in the soil have an adverse impact on soil microbial population and their activities. Since microbial biomass represents an important reservoir of nutrients and is of crucial importance for long‐term fertility of soils, the dehydrogenase activity (DHA) and microbial biomass carbon (MBC) were determined in typical saline, alkali, and saline‐alkali sandy soils of northwestern India by collecting soil samples from the surface 030 m. In the 0–0.15 m soil layer… CONTINUE READING
