    The global and regional extent of the salinization of land and water resources is reviewed. A brief history of human-induced or secondary salinization is provided, followed by a description of the world's population, water and land resources, climate and the extent of human-induced land degradation. Salinization aspects of crop production and irrigation are briefly discussed. Most commonly in drylands the salinity levels are always high and evenly dispersed due to this salinity levels the plant cultivated are usually tremendously affected. Normal plants cannot grow in soils with high salinity levels. In this book the authors would like to analyze the effects of human activities on the salinity levels in drylands.

      Book Description. This important volume, Soil Salinity Management in Agriculture, addresses the crucial issue of soil salinity of potential farmland and provides a comprehensive picture of the saline environment and plant interactions, along with management and reclamation methods and contributions from researchers from the fields of agricultural chemistry, soil science. AbstractIrrigated agriculture faces serious threats of waterlogging and soil salinization in the arid and semiarid regions of the world. In this paper, an integrated spatial-agro-hydro-salinity mod.

    But water management failures were also responsible for the collapse of societies. Notably, the salinization of irrigated lands in Mesopotamia and filling up of ditches with sediments— cleaned out by enslaved Israelites among others—resulted in lost land fertility and an inability to sustain large centrally governed civilizations. Soil salinity is the salt content in the soil; the process of increasing the salt content is known as salinization. Salts occur naturally within soils and water. Salination can be caused by natural processes such as mineral weathering or by the gradual withdrawal of an ocean. It can also come about through artificial processes such as irrigation and road salt.

Primary salinization occurs naturally where the soil parent material is rich in soluble salts, or in the presence of a shallow saline groundwater table.

Managing Salinization: Institutional Analysis of Public Irrigation Systems. [Waltina Scheumann] -- Salinization of soils is a major threat to irrigated agriculture and counteracts the targets of costly public infrastructure investments. Summary Salinization of land and water is an increasing problem in many areas of the world, particularly in arid and semi-arid regions where irrigation is a contributory factor.

Although water erosion is the dominant human-induced soil degradation process, an extent of million km2 suffers from secondary salinization caused by land mismanagement, with 58% of these in irrigated areas alone, and nearly 20% of all irrigated land is salt affected (Ghassemi et al., ).

Irrigation Management at the Farm Level. Sustainable irrigation management and prevention of salt and sodium accumulation require solid planning, appropriate equipment, and monitoring.

A first step is to build the soil so it optimizes water use by the crop. It also reviews the public and private sector interventions made in the past for the management of saline and waterlogged soils in the Pakistan.

The lessons learned and future perspectives of managing salt-affected and waterlogged soils are also the foci of this paper. 2.

Depending on the intensity of salinization and alkalinization processes, various agronomic techniques can be applied to remediate saline soils, at varying time and space scales.
