Guide Helps Determine Level of Soil Salinization

Identification, Mitigation, and Adaptation to Salinization on Working Lands in the U.S. Southeast is a new guide developed by the Southeast Climate Hub, in collaboration with USDA’s Agricultural Research Service and Natural Resources Conservation Service. The free, 79-page publication can assist southeastern producers, as well as extension agents, landowners, field staff, and private consultants, in determining their land’s stage of soil salinization. The guide also presents mitigation and adaptation practices that can reduce soil salinization impacts on productivity, such as leaching with freshwater, installing water control structures, and planting more salt-tolerant crops.
