USGA Summary Points:The study was initiated in July 2015 after a delay of nearly one year caused by heavy rains and flooding during the summer of 2014. Sodium chloride was applied to soils supporting established bermudagrass turf to create saline-sodic soil conditions (ECe>4.0 and ESP>15%). Treatments were implemented to evaluate the effectiveness of recommended remediation procedures for saline-sodic soils and included applications of soil chemical amendments (gypsum, sulfur and control), two levels of irrigation (deficit and leaching) and soil tillage (hollow time and control). Measurements of turf quality, turf growth rate, soil moisture and soil compaction are obtained every two weeks on all plots and subplots. Soils will be sampled in December of 2015 to provide a preliminary assessment of the effectiveness of the remediation treatments.
