At the end of a column experiment studying the flux of ionic salts and Na+ from applied sewage effluent, the salt, Na+, and Ca2+ contents were compared in extracts from porous cups, from the soils around the cups, and saturated paste extracts after the column soils were air-dried. The salt level in the porous cup samples and in the moist soil samples obtained directly at the end of the experiment, and the Na+ content in the porous cup and in saturated paste extracts that were equilibrated for 48 hours were highly correlated.
