Cotton growing in salt-encrusted soils in California

Detailed Description

Salinization—the buildup of salts in soils to levels that are harmful to plants—is a worldwide
problem and affects about one-fourth of the irrigated land in the United States. Effects include
reduced crop yield and restrictions on the kinds of crops that can be grown. Cotton for example
is one of the more salt-tolerant crops grown in California.
