Saline land is a source in a position to major construction. contemporary advances in study in breeding for salt tolerance in wheat, biotechnology in rice, and choice and rehabilitation of salt-tolerant crops are of financial value in arid/saline conditions.
This booklet provides a few useful methods for saline agriculture and afforestation, and describes examples of cultivating salt-tolerant/halophytic crops for advertisement curiosity on salt-affected land or with hugely salinized water in Australia, China, primary Asia, Egypt, Pakistan, and Russia. It additionally explores the probabilities of arid/saline agriculture and afforestation in UAE.

Shortly after the plants were established, the river rose and flooded the site for a few days. The tall plants (100 em high or more) had greatest survival (97%); the shortest plants (60 em or less) had poorest survival (36% ). Research on Australian tree species shows that some highly salt tolerant species have exceptional tolerance to waterlogging under saline conditions, while others are very sensitive. Figure 6 shows the effects of an increasing regime of salinity (up to about 76% of seawater) under drained or waterlogged conditions on the survival of 7 tree species.
At the same time plant species and ecotypes belonging to the tolerant group are equally important. A good number of adaptable species having aggressive and tolerant characteristics are present in by fodder trees, shrubs and semi-shrubs which could be selected for domestication and breeding work. The concept of differentiation in ecological niches and complementary species of plant communities for supporting ecological restoration of pastures: 31 Another important principle of ecology which is very significant for supporting the working of artificial pasture ecosystems deals with the concept of specific complementary plants in multi-species plant communities.

The use coefficient does not exceed 30 % and may vary from 10 to 50% depending on species composition and grazing season. Buchara oasis, with a mosaic of sands and salt deserts ecosystem spreading on large territories in lower part of Zerafshan river was chosen a model site for development of Biosaline Agriculture in arid/sandy Kyzylkum . An unique reserve of virgin desert landscape named "Ecocenter Dgeiran" , which occupy more than 5000 ha is also located in this area.
