Abstract

EM38 device of electromagnetic induction technique was utilized for soil salinity assessment in Akarsu and Yemisli irrigation districts having different quality and quantity irrigation sources. Calibration equations of EM38 readings (ECa) versus standard soil salinity (ECe) for the districts were found statistically representative. Salinity increased with the soil depth in Akarsu and Yemisli. Fresh water resource and excess irrigation water use prevented soil salinity development in Akarsu. Poor quality water use, on the other hand, caused to increase soil salinity in Yemisli.
