Use of deep tillage practices, chiseling in particular, are often helpful in improving soil permeability, infiltration rate and thus help in leaching of salts and reclaiming the saline soils (Miyamoto and Storey, 1995).
The remedial strategies included gypsum application at 100% (10.52 t ha-1) and 50% of SGR, gypsum application at 25% of SGR + 10 t ha-1 farm manure (FM), chiseling + gypsum application at 25% of SGR, chiseling + gypsum at 25% of SGR + 10 t ha-1 FM and sulfur application equivalent to 50% of SGR.
In the treatments having chiseling as amendment; soil was tilled with chisel plough to a depth of 0-25 cm once at start of experiment and before the application of gypsum and FM.
Gypsum, FM, chiseling and sulphur was applied once at the start of experiment.
Among all the remedial strategies gypsum application at 100% of SGR and chiseling + gypsum at 25% SGR + FM at 10 t ha-1 proved the best strategies to improve the soil ECe, pHS and SAR after three years of application (Table 1).
Chiseling with the gain can sometimes have disastrous results.
