Record #119124:

Snow management in the reclamation of sodic soils / H. Steppuhn, D. Curtin.

Title: Snow management in the reclamation of sodic soils / H. Steppuhn, D. Curtin.
Author(s): Steppuhn, H.
Curtin, D.
Date: 1992.
In: Western Snow Conference. Proceedings. (1992.), Vol. 60th Annual Meeting (1992)
Abstract: These soils contain excess exchangeable sodium relative to other cations, which can alter soil structure and reduce permeability. Remedies often involve addition of compounds which release calcium ions to replace excess sodium. Object of study was to determine if reclamation of sodic soils in semi-arid southern Saskatchewan could be advanced by controlling snow-cover accumulations to augment water from natural precipitation for calcium amendments.
