Saline Agriculture Worldwide Creating opportunities for salt-affected farmland
We help to improve crop yield under saline conditions and bring solutions into the hands of farmers
The Dutch Minister of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality, Carola Schouten, stated:
"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!"
