3/27/19: Soils and Salts: From Fertilizer to Tidewater
Salts are a natural component of soils. In fact most nutrients and fertilizers exist in salt forms such as potassium chloride (KCl). Salts can have a negative effect on plant growth, reducing their ability to pull water from the soil. Although the East usually has enough rainfall to keep salt levels low, fertilizer placement, irrigation water, and flooding in the low lying areas of the Mid-Atlantic can all have detrimental effects. We will discuss how to read salt sources, understand fertilizer placement, and implement remediation for gardens and row crops.
