Alkalinity poses a threat to soil and it is an acting agent for soil degradation,which further lowering the production. Some causes: 1.) The Southwest Monsoon brings salt particles and deposits there as a crust. These soils are also formed when saline water spreads on the land at the time of high tide in coastal areas. Ex- Rann of Kauchch 2.) Seawater intrusions in the deltas promote the occurrence of saline soils. 3).Salinization also occurs because of over-irrigation and in areas of high water table like in Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu. 4.) Salinity from irrigation can occur over time wherever irrigation occurs. This is because almost all water ,even natural rainfall contains some dissolved salts. When the plants use the water, the salts are left behind in the soil and eventually begin to accumulate. Also, excessive irrigation with dry climatic conditions promotes capillary action, which results in the deposition of salt on the top layer of the soil . In addition to it , Fertilizers like Urea,NPK,NaHCO3,Na2CO3 may causes alkalinity to the soil . Waste water released from coal powerplant is also the agent pertains to severe alkalinity.✌️
