Saline agriculture:

a practical solution to a global problem

We provide farmers with the means and knowledge of saline agriculture,
in an effort to improve food security,
with minimal impact on already scarce fresh water supplies

Worldwide, large areas of agricultural land are lost every day due to salinization. Land that is much needed for food production to feed the growing world population.

Salinization of farmland causes crops to fail. Farmers can no longer grow food on their land, which causes famine, poverty and social disruption.

At the moment, 1.5 BILLION ha farmland is salt-affected, and this number increases at the rate of 3 ha PER MINUTE.

Thousands of (small-scale) farmers around the world are suffering from this problem, the yearly salt damage in crops is $27 BILLION!

of the water in the world is fresh water
of the available 2% fresh water is for domestic consumption
Of which
is used for agriculture

We have developed a way to cultivate salt tolerant crops on salt land, something that had always seemed impossible. In addition to (re)using degraded lands to produce food, we also use brackish water instead of fresh water for to grow crops.

We produce more food with less water.
