The objectives of this investigation were: 1) to determine if under dryland conditions the salts present in manure applied to the land would accumulate in the root zone to levels high enough to seriously limit crop production, 2) to determine if the ratio of monovalent to divalent cations present in the manure would upset the balance of these cations in the soil and cause soil structure problems, and 3) to determine if the salts and organic matter added by the manure would affect the soil’s ability to transmit water.
