Within the ranks of crop wild relatives, scientists have identified heat and drought tolerance, disease resistance and the ability to thrive in saline soil. Identifying these desirable traits and introducing them into domesticated crops could provide farmers with a vital defence in the face of upcoming environmental challenges.
"Harsh weather, saline soil and extreme heat waves are among the impediments that hamper crop productivity.
To reduce the impact of the direct contact between seedling root system and saline soil, the holes in each pot received an adequate volume of washed river sand (Bessa et al., 2017).
Saline soil and water are the major constraints in reduced agricultural yield of many crops (Chaum et al., 2011; Ashraf, 2009; AzevedoNeto et al., 2006; Alam et al., 2000).
Another project is currently implemented jointly with the Qatar Shell Research and Technology Centre to study the use of saline soil and saline water in producing agriculture crops and reducing the deterioration of land quality.

Considering the urgent needs of transmission line construction, four groups of model tests were carried out on the belled pier foundations constructed on two-layered soils, coarse-grained saline soil layer above, and conventional coarse soils (CS) layer.
In recent years, FD has been used in public datasets such as diesel, corn, and wheat, as well as to analyze the spectral pretreatment effects of Xinjiang's saline soil in laboratory environments.
With the values of plant height, stem diameter, MSR and MSPM, were estimated the relative growth in height, relative growth in diameter, relative production of MSPM and MSR, correlating the values of these variables, obtained in the saline soil (with or without correction) with those obtained in the non-saline soil.
Saline soil has an electrical conductivity (EC) of the saturation soil extract of more than 4 dS [m.sup.-1] at 25[degrees]C [1,2].
Therefore, mudflat saline soil that needs organic amendment may become a potential land source for safe disposal of massive dairy manure, which also has a great incentive in view of mudflat saline soil amendment, and nutrient recycling and reuse including OM, nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and other plant nutrients.
