ABSTRACT
This study was aimed to find out the variation in total and HCI- extractable mineral composition of tomato, cabbage and brinjal irrigated with canal water and sodic water treated with gypsum and farm yard manure (FYM) Vegetables grown under soil irrigated with canal water (control) and soil irrigated with sodic water treated with gypsum and FYM at two different levels i.e. 50 % neutralization of sodicity (G1F2) and complete neutralization of sodicity (G2F2) were obtained from the Vegetable Research Farm, CCS Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar. Total and HCI- extractable minerals were analysed in acid digested samples. ANOVAwas done to determine differences in mineral profile of vegetables grown under three different water treatments Vegetables irrigated with G2F2 (100 % neutralization of sodicity) treated water and canal water (control) had higher (P<005) amounts of total and HCI- extractable calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, iron, zinc and sulphate but lower amounts of sodium and chloride than the vegetables irrigated with G1F2 (50 % neutralization of sodicity) treated water.
