The appearance of a salt layer on or within the soil due to exposure to salt water, or resulting from the evaporation of soil water that is high in salts.
the accumulation of salts in a soil which has experienced improper irrigation practices
The condition in which the salt content of soil accumulates over time to above normal levels; occurs in some parts of the world where water containing high salt concentration evaporates from fields irrigated with standing water.
In a poorly drained region, the accumilation of soluble salts in the soil by evapotranspiration of the waters that bore them to the soil zone.
Destruction of productive land by an increase in its salt content. Occurs frequently from overirrigated soil when evaporation of water at the surface draws salts from underground rocks and soils, causing salts to crystallize and interfere with root growth.
A process in which mineral salts accumulate in the soil, killing plants; occurs when soils in dry climates are irrigated profusely.
the accumulation of salts in soils
n: Accumulation of salts in soil that can eventually make the soil unable to support plant growth.
