1. In recent years, salinity has become the most important issue in fields, gardens and greenhouses as well. This, of course, has forced us to control saline areas, and therefore, many control mechanisms that have been put forward. Many of them (genetics, biochemical and physical) have not brought...
  2. Abstract, 2017, Turkish Journal of Agriculture and Forestry Salt-induced land degradation has gradually increased in several major irrigation schemes within arid and semiarid regions. To maximize crop productivity under saline conditions, either salt tolerance crops should be cultivated or areas...
  3. Abstract, 2014, Annals of Botany Recruiting wild halophytes with economic potential was suggested several decades ago as a way to reduce the damage caused by salinization of soil and water. A range of cultivation systems for the utilization of halophytes have been developed, for the production of...
  4. Abstract, 2018, Sustainability Saline irrigation water can lead to salt buildup and reduced crop yields. Halophytic plants are known to accumulate excess salts in tissues, removing them from the immediate environment. This two-phase experiment explored the feasibility of intercropping watermelon...
  5. Abstract, In order to evaluate the effects ofSalsola sodaL. andPortulaca oleraceaL. used as companion plants on growth and yield of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) in salt stress conditions, a trial was conducted in soil-filled benches of a greenhouse in Central Italy. The plant...
  6. Abstract, 2008, Soil & Water Research Soil and water salinization are affecting an increasing number of countries in the world, especially in arid and semi-arid regions, and cause sensible reductions of agricultural land extension and of crop yields. Consociation with halophytic plants is a...
  7. Halophytesare salt-tolerant plants that are found throughout the world. Halophytes can be used to grow both fuel and food, and a NASA facility is attempting to use halophytes for large-scale fuel production. The aim is to create aviation-grade biofuels without using any arable land, freshwater,...
