In the present paper, the sodic soil samples were collected from the salt production area of Thakhauttaw, Hanlin, Sataung Gyi and Paline, Shwebo District, Sagaing Region. These samples were studied on the elemental analysis using the energy dispersive x-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) spectroscopy. In order to evaluate the contamination status of metals, assessment indices such as metal pollution index (MPI) and enrichment factors (EFs) have been calculated by using the metal concentrations from the EDXRF results. The values of metal pollution index (MPI) for all samples were less than 1. This indicating the sodic soil was no significant of metal pollution. The results of enrichment factors show that Ca and Mn considerable enriched levels in the soil. According to health physics point of view, the overall study suggests that the sodic soil from salt production area were not metal contaminated and long-term consumption cannot be cause potential health risks to consumers.
