Abstract/Contents:The biggest concern when watering with effluent is the total dissolved salts, which include calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium. If there is too much sodium in the effluent, then the soil turns to clay. The use of elemental sulfur or gypsum compensates for the problem. It is recommended to repeat annual applications of one ton of gypsum per acre to control Na. Increased nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium should be taken full advantage of.
