- ... Soil salinity, sodicity and saline groundwater are major constraints to the cultivation of landscape plants along oceanic coasts. A sustainable approach for reclaiming saline–sodic soils in coastal environments is evaluated. Soil tillage, phased saline water management based on soil matric potential under drip-irrigation, and the installation of a gravel–sand layer were used. Field trials using th ...
