Engineering Practices for Management of Soil Salinity : Agricultural, Physiological, and Adaptive Approaches Hardback
Edited by S. K. Gupta, Megh R. (University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez (Retired professor)) Goyal, Anshuman Singh
Part of the Innovations in Agricultural & Biological Engineering series
Abiotic stresses are known to adversely impact agricultural productivity on millions of hectares globally, and it is projected that these problems are likely to increase, primarily due to anthropogenic interventions as well as climatic changes.
Understanding abiotic stresses-especially salt stress on soil-calls for an interdisciplinary approach because salt-stressed soils need hydro-technical, chemical, and agronomic interventions as well as an understanding of plant response when exposed to these stresses.
This volume explores and conveys the latest information on emerging technologies in the management of abiotic salt stress and their field applications.
It brings together experts from various fields (academia, technology, and engineering) to provide the latest information and knowledge on this important challenge.
