Ungar, I.A. Halophytes and salt-tolerant plants have been used as feed resources in arid and semi-arid regions for millennia (Le Houérou,Glenn et al.,El Shaer,El Shaer et al., ). Many of the halophytic plant species and salt-tolerant fodder species provide a valuable reserve feed for grazing animals particularly under drought Cited by: This paper has reviewed the current status of halophytes for their potential use as a source of food for humans and livestock, as crops for biofuel,for medicinal and other industrial purposes, as well as their capacity to rehabilitate salt-affected land.

Crop and forage species currently used in agriculture are a result of many centuries of Cited by: A Bibliography of Forage Halophytes and Trees for Salt-affected Land: their use, culture and physiology. Karachi: Department of Botany, University of Karachi. Becuase of their diversity, halophytes have been regarded as a rich source of potential new crops.

Halophytes have been tested as vegetable, forage, and oilseed crops in agronomic field trials. The most productive species yield 10 to 20 ton/ha of biomass on seawater irrigation, equivalent to conventional crops.

While halophytes are intrinsically fascinating for the ways in which they are adapted to grow under conditions lethal for most plant species, this ability has increasing potential in a world where the human population is still increasing and land-use practices and changes in the climate are likely to lead to increased salinization of the land Cited by:   While the exact extent of salt-affected land has long been uncertain (see Flowers and Yeo ), estimates from FAO () suggest that ‘34 Mha (11 percent of the irrigated area) are affected by some level of salinity’ with a further 60–80 Mha having some waterlogging/salinity by: The evolution of salt tolerance is interesting for several reasons.

First, since salt-tolerant plants (halophytes) employ several different mechanisms to deal with salt, the evolution of salt tolerance represents a fascinating case study in the evolution of a complex trait.

Second, the diversity of mechanisms employed by halophytes, based on processes common to all plants, sheds light on the. “But in addition to this, secondary salinity can occur from human intervention. In agricultural areas, the land is cleared of native vegetation (like perennial shrubs and trees with deep roots) and replaced with shallow-rooting crop plants” This causes the underground water table to rise, moving salts up to the soil surface”.

The current status and trends of salinization are discussed with waterlogging of marginal land/plant and water resources problems including strategies for development of integrated biosaline crop-livestock agriculture based system on food-feed crops and forage legumes for better livelihood of poor farmers in Central Asian (Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan and Tajikistan).

rhizosphere of halophytes can provide new information regarding osmoregulation and some of the genes thus identified could be used for developing salt tolerant economic crops. Screening of the available germplasm for saltolerance has been carried out to select appropriate plants for.

Halophytes on the Dhabaiya Gypsum Dunes (UAE) How can we take advantage of halophyte properties to cope with heavy metal toxicity in salt-affected areas. A halophyte is a plant that grows in waters of high salinity, coming into contact with saline water through its roots or by salt spray, such as in saline semi-deserts, mangrove swamps, marshes.

Introduction. The total area of salt-affected soils in the world is million hectares which includes and million hectares of saline and sodic soils, respectively [].The agricultural land is decreasing constantly due to population pressure, adverse environmental condition, continuously increasing natural calamities, and global climate change [2, 3].

Many, but not all, dicotyledonous halophytes show optimal growth in concentrations of 50– m m NaCl (Flowers et al., ), while monocotyledonous halophytes generally grow optimally in the absence of salt or, if growth is stimulated, this is by a low (50 m m or less) concentration of NaCl (Glenn, ; Glenn et al., ).

Changes in the. Four halophytic perennial forage grass species, Distichlis spicata, Paspalum vaginatum, Sporobolus virginicus and S. arabicus, were planted in three salt-degraded and abandoned farms at Mezaira’a, Madinat Zayed and Ghayathi in the United Arab salinity of the irrigation water in the three farms at the time of establishment of the grasses ranged between and dSm –1.

rainfall varies between mm. Strips of different forage halophytes were cultivated each separated by a row of fodder shrubs. Each strip was m wide. Agro-climatic conditions and chemistry of soils and underground water.

The agro-climatic environments and availability of water sources for. Farmers and gardeners in semi-arid and arid regions of the world face two associated but separate problems, which limit the crops they can grow and the yield of these crops.

The underlying problem is lack of rainfall needed for growing plants. The second is accumulation of salts in the root zone. The two are interrelated, but do not necessarily occur together.

The interest generated in preparing and presenting this symposium all pointed to the need for a review volume on the salt marsh ecosystem, the saline soil ecosystem, and what was known about these systems. The diversity of interests of the contributors demonstrates the comprehensive nature of the Ecology of Halophytes.
