Saline agriculture:

a practical solution to a global problem


We provide farmers with the means and knowledge of saline agriculture,
in an effort to combat salinization and 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, 63 Million ha of all irrigated farmland is salt-affected, and this number increases at the rate of 2000 ha per day.

Thousands of farmers around the world are suffering from this problem, the yearly salt damage in crops is about $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 methods to cultivate salt tolerant crops on salt-affected farmland, 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 to grow crops.

We produce more food with less water.
