Improvements to the dispersion status of piped gully soils following reworking and stabilisation by vegetation

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The physical and chemical properties of sodic gully bank soil material, deposited as in-channel sedimentary structures below a pipe system in alkaline marls, Colorado, were re-analysed for their dispersive status using a new methodology. The original samples were taken from in-gully sedimentary structures with differing densities of established vegetation cover. The results showed that the use of salt-tolerant species in bio-reclamation of dispersive soils could reduce the need for gypsum amendments, and reinforces the value of the site signature approach to dispersive soil analysis
