Abstract/Contents:"In the search for alternative road deicers one of the new materials which are at present being tested is CMA, a mixture of calcium and magnesium acetate. It is believed that with CMA the harmful effects on the environment are almost nil. CMA was therefore tested against NaCL in a pot experiment to compare their effects on the growth of Phleum pratense, a relatively salt-sensitive grass species. The dosage corresponded to the average use of deicers in winter road maintenance in urban areas. Both materials decreased yield relative to the control, particularly NaCl. The great differences in dry matter yield between the two NaCl levels were not observed with CMA, the yields of CMA treated plants being almost the same at both levels. The mineral content of the grass was also differently affected by the respective elements in the tested products. While the content of Na and Cl in the plants rose almost proportionally to the amounts of NaCl applied, the addition of calcium and magnesium through CMA had no apparent effect on the content of Ca and Mg. As the results show, CMA has advantages over NaCl with regard to phytotoxicity, but it also has some drawbacks from the economical point of view (e.g. high production costs)."
