Abstract

Historically, and with the impacts of the climate change, droughts are increasingly severe in arid and semi-arid regions, limiting the use of irrigation by freshwater scarcity. Thus, conventional soil cultivation methods need to undergo changes aiming reduce water loss. As an alternative for these regions, brackish groundwater can be used as non-conventional water resources in potential to supplement irrigation water; however, there are severe risks of soil salinization, as well as losses in crop production and quality. Therefore, sustainable technologies should be used to mitigate or control the impacts caused by salt stress; in addition to requiring less volume of water in the production process.
