The Dynamics of Growing Herbaceous Plants in the Soil Contaminated with Sodium Formiate

Agnė Kazlauskienė


Salts are most frequently used for road maintenance in cold seasons in Lithuania. In case the use of salts is mandatory, the proposal is to apply as small amounts as possible following the norms of use. Using alternative de-icing salts and agents, such as formiates is recommended. Formiates can be applied with the aim to reduce road sliperness and as a preventive measure of de-icing road paving. These substances are efficient, environment-friendly and have no corrosive effect. The article presents physicochemical and toxicological characteristics of the above introduced materials.
