Ecological conservation and reclamation of arid/saline lands under agricultural system development in Kyzylkum deserts of Uzbekistan. K. N. Toderich, T. Tsukatani, R. I. Goldshtein, V. B. Aparin, A. A. Ashurmetov. This book gives some practical approaches for saline agriculture and afforestation, and describes examples of cultivating ytic plants for commercial interest on salt-affected land or with highly salinized water in Australia, China, Central Asia, Egypt, Pakistan, and Russia. It also explores the possibilities of arid/saline agriculture and afforestation in UAE. Keywords.
Salt-tolerant forages for irrigated saline land in central Iraq. Edward G Barrett-Lennard. Salinity is a major desertification process affecting the agricultural productivity of irrigated and non-irrigated land resources. Human induced salinity presently occurs on about 80 Mha, but will affect substantially greater areas in the future.

Saline agriculture for irrigated land in Pakistan: a handbook. Barrett-Lennard. Saline agriculture is a rich collection of possible systems for the use of saline land, involving combinations of salt-tolerant trees, shrubs and crops. This handbook is written for farmers an.

Abstract Reclamation is needed on three million ha of slowly permeable saline-sodic soils in the Indus Plain of Pakistan.
In Pakistan, use of high salt containing irrigation water causes poor soil texture and poor permeation of water (Qureshi and . G. (2002). Restoration of saline land through revegetation.
In Pakistan, use of high salt containing irrigation water causes poor soil texture and poor permeation of water (Qureshi and Barrett-Lennard, 1998). Secondary salinity occurs in Australia, where water-table increases to two meters of the soil layer which is near to the root sector. Moreover, as the porosity of soil is around 10 percent, it needs a little (∼100 mm) rainfall for water-table to increase up to the exterior surface to cause salinity and waterlogging stresses simultaneously (Barrett-Lennard, 2002).

ACIAR Monograph No. vi + 142 . Canberra, Australia: ACIAR. AJMAL KHAN Department of Botany, University of Karachi, Karachi-75270, Pakistan. Abstract One third of the worlds . x108 hectares of irrigated land is salt-affected and, with the general demand for freshwater increasing, maintaining the supply for agriculture becomes more difficult. The utilisation of halophytic plants (crops adapted to saline conditions) for producing food, forage, fibre, and edible oil is one possibility.
