This report deals with this analysis “Biocompost Influences Salinity and Plant Development by Experimenting with Greenhouse Pots” [1], “Soil salinity reduction by bio-compost” [2], “In Agra Region-Biocompost Plays a Part in Reducing Saline Soil” [3] and “Biocompost Role in the reducement of Saline Soil in Agra Region” [4]. When the salt concentration of the soil exceeds the normal value, the phenomenon of soil salinity occurs. The process of raising the salt content of water is known as salinization. Natural salts can be found in soils and water. It is possible to reach a state of salinity. Specific processes, such as mineral preservation or the progressive withdrawal of an ocean, are used. In addition to the overuse of chemical fertilizers in farming, artificial materials could be utilized to construct it. Salinity also inhibits plant development and crop yield. The goal of this study is to learn more about how salt affects plant growth and how management measures can assist prevent soil salinization. The biocompost was utilized to lessen the soil's salinity. The usage of biocompost reduced the estibilized soil hydrology model in Agra. The electrical conductivity (EC) of a Biocompost combination of soil samples is measured as MS-4. According to the findings, biocompost has a significant potential for lowering soil salinity and could be a highly effective alternative to conventional fertilizers for promoting plant growth.
