For all picked up samples (water and soil), factors such as salinity (ECe), reaction (pH), solution cations (Mg2+, Ca2+, Na+) will be measured to calculate sodium absorption ratio (SAR) and solution cations, (HCO3-, SO42-, C1-) and for soil samples before and after leachin of percentage values for calcium carbonate, gypsum rate (watery calcium sulfate) in laboratory.
