Some gardeners use salt to help control weeds in asparagus beds. It doesn't seem to hurt the asparagus but after a while it can build up in the soil and cause problems. I'd simply mulch over the bare soil in the bed to suppress weeds rather than use salt. This way you won't be upsetting the natural balance in the soil.
