Abstract

The research paper pays attention related to the management of soil salinity assessment in the Galgotias University, Crop Cafeteria, located in Greater Noida, District Gautam Buddh Nagar, Uttar Pradesh, India. The research work analyzes the chemical, physical and biological properties of the soil quality assessment, before and after the reclamation to find out the feasible way to indulgence saline soils. The soil pH in 2018 was 8.75 which after three years of crop nurturing and reclamation efforts reduced to pH 8.0. The soil organic carbon was too low in the year 2018 and it was reported 0.27, 0.35, 0.39 and 0.45 % in the year 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021 respectively which is positive sign for reclamation. The soil quality was improved through the scientific and traditional procedure using cow dung manure, vermicompost, neem cake, gypsum and grow green manure (Sesbania bisponosa) and found the improvement in the soil structure, size patterns and agriculture productivity.
