Abstract: This paper deals with this research “Role of compost in reduction of saline soil of Agra” [1] and “Soil salinity reduction by bio-compost” [2]. The salinity of the soil is the occurrence which raises the salt content from standard value. The method of increasing the salt content is called Salinization. In soils and water, salts usually occur. It can be these bilish Salinization. Characteristic methods, e.g., durability of minerals or progressive sea removal. It may also come into being with an artificial drainage and excessive use in agriculture of synthetic fertilizers. Salt content is a significant crisis in both plant and crop development. The aim of this research is to study salinity problems on plant cultivation and how soil management methods can prevent salinization problems. Bio-compost has been used to decrease the salinity of the land. With the use of bio-compost, Agra’s estibilised soil hydrology model was decreased. Soil-compost combination of saline soil SA-1 and soil samples SA-2 electrical conductivity (EC).To assess the influence of bio-compost on salinity on plant cultivation, greenhouse pot experiments were carry out on least salinity presence on both the soil by varying pH as 5.5, 6, 7 and 8. The plant chosen for this investigation was wheat (Triticum Aestivum). The plant growth of wheat were obsevered significant at pH-6 and 7 in both SA-1 and SA-2 soil samples. The results of the study recommend bio-compost have great potential to reduce soil salinity and could be highly potent alternative to chemical fertilizer and increase the growth of plant.
