The provision of freshwater for agricultural use is declining in lots of parts of the realm. because of this for the expanding use of reduce caliber or of saline water for crop creation. lengthy use of saline water significantly impacts the irrigated soils, which contributes to the worldwide land degradation technique and has direct effect on biomass production.
For this cause, relief of the unfold of salinization, revitalization of salinized components and advent of salt tolerant high-yielding plants are very important concerns. the capability position of halophytes within the administration of salinity difficulties of arid lands is investigated at size these days; a few of these have produced promising forage crops.
This quantity makes a speciality of reclamation, administration, and usage of salt-affected soils, their sustainable use, and assessment of vegetation inhabiting evidently taking place saline habitats.

Halophytes as livestock fodder Halophytes having economic values can be grown on salt-affected wastelands, which may bring socio-economic gains. It was observed that farmers as well as livestock of salt-affected areas face great scarcity of food, fodder and feed. The farmers of these areas often arrange fodders for their livestock from other areas at very high costs. However, if these areas are utilized for developing pastures or rangelands with salt tolerant forage plants, good economic returns can be achieved.

Fusca and P. distans increased consistently with increasing stress level whereas, that of C. Pennisetiformis, P. turgidum, and P. divisum remained unaffected at all the treatments. Puccinellia distans had significantly greater amount of proline compared with all the other species at all salt treatments. Leptochloa fusca also synthesized greater quantity of proline than the remaining three species at the higher salt treatments. The proline content of the remaining species was almost similar at all salt treatments (Tab.
