Abstract

This work analyzes the current trends in land salinization and its impact on the global food security. It is argued that reliance on salt-excluding crops is counterproductive and environmentally unsustainable. New breeding paradigms are required to incorporate halophytic traits that were present in wild relatives but lost during domestication.
