In the middle Senegal valley, the saline soil distribution is not related to the present faint topography. The absence of a relationship is one of the major constraints in establishing new irrigation schemes. The salt distribution was studied to understand its variability, and to describe its structure and spatial arrangement. Saline areas were delineated by measuring the electromagnetic soil conductivity (ECm), a rapid technique with a portable instrument (EM38). The results indicate that the… CONTINUE READING
