ESR—SAR relationships of 623 soil samples from arid and semi‐arid zones in Israel were found to depend on soil salinity and cation exchange capacity as reflected crudely by the saturation percentage. The Gapon constant decreased as salinity increased and, for a given salinity level, it also decreased as the soil saturation percentage (SP) increased. There was no relationship between ESR and SAR for soils with low SP values (20–40) or low salinity levels (0.2–2 dSm−1). Regression equations are presented for different salinity and saturation percentage levels. Copyright © 1984, Wiley Blackwell. All rights reserved
