Saline Wastelands, Environment and Plant Growth

B K Garg (Author) I C Gupta (Author)
Synopsis The book presents in part one, historical account of the development of saline wastelands, environment, nature and properties of saline soils and reclamation and management principles. Part two deals with identification of salt tolerant plants, mechanism of salt injury, metabolic processes and mineral nutrition in relation to salinity, mechanism of salt tolerance and strategies to increase salt tolerance in crop plants. The first edition of the book under the title "Saline Environment and Plant Growth" was published in 1987. Due to overwhelming response, the book had been soon out of market. The purpose of the present monograph was therefore to update the relevant information so that the latest synthesized knowledge becomes easily accessible to research workers, teachers, students, extension people and planners who can utilise it profitably in utilising saline wastelands through growing plants thereby improving environment. Since the demographic compulsions and degradation of lands and environment is a global problem, the technologies and knowledge, presented herein, should prove immensely valuable to all other countries of the world as well.
