TAILIEUCHUNG - Effect of magnetic treatment on leaching efficiency of salts

A column study was conducted to examine the effect of magnetic treatment on leaching efficiency of salts. Leaching a saline soil with magnetized water removed more salts from the soil compared to leaching with nonmagnetized water. Soils leached with magnetized water had significantly higher leachate salinity and lower soil salinity compared to leaching with non-magnetized water. | 2018 7 3 3363-3367 EXCELLENT PUBLISHERS International Journal of Current Microbiology and Applied Sciences ISSN 2319-7706 Volume 7 Number 03 2018 Journal homepage http Original Research Article https Effect of Magnetic Treatment on Leaching Efficiency of Salts Ashwini H.

Introduction Magnetized water is water passed through a magnetic field. Magnetic technology can become a useful tool as proved by many researchers to tackle problems related to reduced crop productivity due to use of saline water in agriculture. Magnetically treated water is reported to save on average 20 per cent water with 10 per cent increased yields Lin and Yotvat 1990 . This treatment would be beneficial in today s world with water scarcity and food shortages in many regions. Bogatin 1999 reported an increase in crop yield by 10-15 per cent under magnetic water treatment due to a leaching of superfluous salts b better permeability of irrigated water and c better dissociation of mineral fertilizers. Increased permeability of water reduce the amount of water required for each irrigation event. Magnetized water has been used as an effective means for soil desalinization. Magnetized water applied to salty .
