About Salinity

What it Means-

          Soil salinity is a major problem that affects agricultural productivity globally, with Gujarat, Rajasthan, and Maharashtra being the most affected states. To manage soil salinity, there are various ways, such as increasing drainage, planting salt-tolerant crops, removing salt crystals mechanically, restoring balance with chemical amendments, pre-treating seeds with NaCl, and reducing evaporation with mulch. Fertilizers should be applied rationally to avoid salinization.

Relevance...

        In order to protect their livelihoods and the long-term viability of their agricultural systems, farmers must regulate the salinity of their soil. It has the potential to increase agricultural yields and quality while decreasing water use and preventing soil and water resource degradation. Additionally, it can result in nutrient imbalances, water stress, and toxic effects on plant roots, which lower crop yields and quality.

Subsurface Drainage System

Implementation Of Subsurface Drainage System

      For subsurface drainage practices, excess water is collected in underground perforated pipes installed at certain depths and slopes to allow this water to flow from laterals to main collectors until discharged from the land. Sometimes, these underground pipes deliver excess water directly to ditches that are dug in the land, and then these ditches discharge this excess water from the land.

Subsurface Drainage System

Improved crop growth and yield due to the removal of excess salts from the root zone.

Increased profitability for farmers due to higher crop yields and reduced crop losses.

More sustainable agricultural practices that can improve soil health and reduce the risk of long-term soil salinization.
