An experiment was conducted to study the effect of magnetic treatment on sodium adsorption ratio (SAR) and residual sodium carbonate content (RSC). The SAR values decreased significantly due to magnetic field treatment. However, multiple magnetic exposures (two times and three times passed) resulted in significant increase in SAR. The mean bicarbonate contents decreased significantly due to one-time magnetic treatment. The mean RSC values increased significantly due to one-time magnetic treatment. However, with second magnetic exposure (two times and three times passed), mean RSC value decreased.
Key words: Sodium adsorption ratio, Residual sodium carbonate, Magnetic treatment, Salinity levels.
