Crop Production in Saline Environments: Global and Integrative Perspectives examines soil salinity problems in international crop production, analysing integrative approaches that have been used to overcome and mitigate the adverse effects. This unique book provides you with state-of-the-art information on the nature and extent of soil salinization, specific amelioration approaches, and the potential integrative options you need to manage future salinity problems. An international panel of authors addresses concerns about soil salinity in China, India, Pakistan, Africa, Siberia, and California's San Joaquin Valley, presenting multidisciplinary solutions that really work. Crop Production in Saline Environments presents state-of-the-art information on the nature and extent of soil salinization around the world with specific amelioration approaches being used in different regions. The book includes area maps, flow-charts, field photographs, and case studies from major salt-affected arable areas of the world, addressing vital issues, such as: enhancing salt tolerance through molecular breeding; using Arabidopsis to improve drought stress tolerance; using saline-sodic waters for irrigation; modelling pumped water salinity and salt water upcoming; determining sustainable cropping patterns in shallow groundwater regions; and much more! Crop Production in Saline Environments is an essential resource for agricultural scientists, engineers, practitioners, policymakers, and managers. The book also lends itself to use in graduate and undergraduate courses in agronomy, plant physiology, soil sciences, plant breeding, and plant biotechnology, emphasizing abiotic plant stress and its management.
