Laboratory data show that sodic, fine-textured soils are impossible to reclaim by applying gypsum to the surface, and that the high-salt-water dilution method is effective within limits. A combination of the two methods appears both effective and practical. Basic principles and calculation procedures involved in the engineering evaluation of a reclamation program are presented.
