Salinity is one of the emerging issues in the 21st century, marked by increased salinization of soil and water. Salinity is often referred to as a “white death” and almost 32 million ha of drylands and 60 million ha of irrigated land have been salinized worldwide by the dint of improper anthropogenic activities. Saline soil generally defined in electrical conductivity (EC) of the saturation extract (ECe) in the plant root zone exceeds 4 dS m−1 (40 mM NaCl) with an exchangeable sodium percentage of 15%. The grain yield of most crop plants is reduced at this ECe, though many crops exhibit yield reduction at lower ECes.
