Stress has been defined among the major environmental constraints to crop production which results in stunt growth and low yield. Stress in plants is caused either by biotic (i.e. diseases and pests) or abiotic (i.e. salinity, drought, low and high temperatures, deficiency or excess of nutrients) factors. Soil salinity is affirmed to be the most crucial factor among the other abiotic stress sources. The water quality used for irrigation is determinative on the type and the quantity of the accumulated salts.

 Figure 1.  Some of the effects triggered by salt stress on plants.

The high salt concentration of the irrigation water augments the density of the soil solution, namely the osmotic pressure; and thereby, the water uptake by the plant roots is impeded. Subsequently, physiological drought occurs in which plants cannot absorb the water even though water may be freely available. Thereof, these salts affect the plant growth in a number of ways by distorting the physical properties of the soil and exposing toxic effect directly on the plant which ultimately results in decreases in yield. The significance level of this negative effect is correlated with the concentration of the solution and the resistance of the plant against salt. To sum up, while there is no significant decrease in the yield of plants with high salt resistance at high salinity levels observed, significant decreases have been reported in the yield of plants with low salt resistance even at low salinity levels.

2P Salinity with its rich organic acid and calcium content is particularly engineered to regulate both the salinity level of the irrigation water and the soil. By means of its high calcium content, it replaces with the sodium that is fixed in the soil; and thereby, the excess sodium disappears as it is washed away. Moreover; it helps in correcting calcium deficiency. While improving the crop quality by accommodating the calcium need, it renders the outer membrane of the fruit more flexible. Thereby, cracks caused by calcium deficiency are minimized whilst preventing blossom end rot.

This special calcium with its bidirectional transport feature within plant can be completely absorbed by the leaf and carried to the fruit; and in case of soil application it renders other calcium compounds beneficial to the plant by breaking them down.

It is reported that 2P Salinity applied fruits retain their quality longer. Here below some prominent benefits of 2P Salinity are listed when it is applied in the pre-flowering period:

  • Increases the yield through the formation of potent pollen tube.
  • Improves the product quality during fruit formation.
  • Prolongs the shelf life of the product after harvest.
  • Provides a positive increase in the cation exchange capacity which also indicates an increase in the number of useful cations in the organic matter.
  • Boosts the production ability of the plant which is exposed to stress due to the high salinity level.
  • Removes the hardness of the water.
  • Relieves the plant by regulating the pH level of the irrigation water and the soil.
  • Facilitates the uptake of macro and micro elements.

2P Salinity is compatible with other products but especially phosphorus. It is carried completely to the fruit through the xylem and phloem. Since it activates the color pigments, it provides brightness and makes the plant and fruits to get a dark green color. Other product advantages are highlighted as below:

  • Removes salt and makes the fruits bigger.
  • It is acidic and decreases the pH level of the soil.
  • Breaks down the calcium source, lime in the soil and enhances its uptake by chelating.
  • Prolongs the shelf life of the fruits by rendering them rigid.
  • Prevents fruit and flower shedding.
  • Promotes rejuvenation of the cops as an activator.
  • Suitable for both foliar and soil application.
  • Increase the brix level in fruits.
  • Protects the plant from diseases and harmful effects by forming a potent tissue structure.
  • Makes the plant strong and healthy.
  • Enhances the effectiveness of the pesticide by 100% when it is mixed up with other pesticides and fertilizers.


The experiment testing the performance of 2P Salinity was established according to the randomized plot design and carried out under the laboratory conditions. Dry aeration method was applied on the soils taken from the selected lands from a depth of 30-60 cm until reaching the wilting point, and then, they have beed sieved with a mesh of 4 mm before filling them into pots of equal volume.

T0 was designated as the control group and was irrigated with tap water (EC; 0.339 dS/m (Medium salt) until it reached the saturation point in 3 replications. Whereas; T1 was designated as the trial group and the application dose was divided evenly into 3 replications and watered with 2P Salinity + tap water until the saturation point was reached. After the applications, samples were taken in equal volumes from both soils for the lab analysis. The findings of this trial reveal that the EC value of the soil significantly decreases when 2P Salinity is applied.
