Abstract

A significant area of Pakistan is affected by high concentration of soluble and exchangeable salts that limit
crop production. So, this study was planned to thrash positive effects of compost not only on yield of rice and
wheat plants, but also on its role as a recovery agent. To achieve this purpose, a salt sodium field with pH = 8.63,
TSS = 49.5 me L-1 , SAR = 18.99 was selected. Experiment consisted of 6 treatments that were repeated four times
using a randomized complete block design.
