A field experiment was conducted in micro plots of the Department of Chemistry, St. John’s College, Agra during winter season with the objects of studying the effect of varying levels of gypsum on certain growth parameters in sugarbeet crops grown under varying sodicity levels. It is obvious from the result that the height, number of leaves, size of sugarbeet fresh and dry biomass yield significantly increased with the rise in gypsum levels over controlled plots. The G0R2 levels tremendously reduced the all above parameters over control 15meL-1 sodic water without chemical amendments resulted marked reduction in all growth parameters except.
The concentration of RSC of 15meL-1 irrigation water or in soil solution increased the sodium absorption in soil which ultimately gave rise to plasmolysis as a result in plant growth arrested in most of in the treatment where more sodic water used for irrigation purpose. Therefore, solution having bicarbonate in excess which also increased the ESP and pH of the soil.
