  • P. E. Esenov

Soil salinity is the worst hindrance to crop-growing; the researches of the Desert institute in this field are summarized They are placed in the context of the work done or needing to be done in the five Central Asian republics. The specific, local, geographical factors are sketched in. The traditional method of leaching has both advantages and disadvantages. Of crucial importance for leaching is good, draining. A more modern method is that of crop-growing with salt-friendly crops such as rice. The problem of soil salinization is complicated by difficult environmental problems such as water pollution.
