Education and information
The Knowledge Centre on saline agriculture is an initiative of the Salt Farm Foundation, supported by the Dutch Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality.
We have the knowledge. It is now important to share this knowledge with the world.
Saline agriculture could be an important solution to the global challenge of improving food security. We have the knowledge. It is now important to share this knowledge with the world, starting with farmers.
The mission of the Salt Farm Foundation is ‘to 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’.
The Dutch Minister of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality, Carola Schouten, said:
"Worldwide around one billion hectares of farmland is considered non-arable due to salinization. With the knowledge, we now have about cultivation methods and selecting salt-tolerant crops, this farmland can be used to produce food. Many countries simply need this knowledge in order to produce. Hence, we support the start-up of an institute that makes sure this knowledge is shared worldwide. A major contribution to global food security!"
