Kalpitiya and Anuradhapura are major agricultural regions in Sri Lanka. The high Electrical Conductivity (Salinity) ground water of these areas has been negatively affected to the growth rates and crop yield. The Electrical Conductivity (EC) values of these areas vary from 4 dS m-1 to 50 dS m-. As an Agricultural country it is necessary to find a method to secure agricultural water by reducing salinity for sustainable food production. Hence the main goal of the current study is apply environmental friendly agricultural wastes for reducing salinity from agricultural water using column bed sorption method and measure the efficiency of adsorbents. Main aim is to explore the improving productivity of cultivars in Sri Lanka.
In truth I could not achieve my current level of success without a strong support group. First of all my parents who supported me with love and understanding Secondly for all the Research officers, Research Assistants, Technical Assistants and laborers who works in Horticulture Crop Research and Development Institute whom has provided patient advice and guidance throughout the research Process. Finally, for the University of Sri Jayawardanapura, Thank you all for your unwavering support.
