Keeping Salinity in Check.

Keeping levels of sodium, chloride, and boron down in your soil is an ongoing challenge with long-term irrigation in an arid climate such as California. Almond trees whose roots are exposed to excess salt may develop tissue toxicity. This can be prevented by flushing soils periodically to leach salts away from the root zone. Calcium may also be added to the soil in order to neutralize the salts.
