A field study was conducted to determine the effect of soil characteristics and salinity on sugarcane yield. Seventeen fields were selected, the soils described and characterized and classified according to their salinity and alkalinity. Salinity (ECe) levels ranged from 0.99 to 17.32 mmho/cm with the higher values associated with fine textured soils. Eight fields were classified as non-saline non-alkaline with an average ECe of 1.62 rnmho/cm, seven fields were classified as saline with an… CONTINUE READING
