The journal, ‘Science’, reports that growing crops in salt water is becoming necessary to overcome shortages of fresh water. They suggest the domestication of wild plants that grow in salty conditions could help reduce global food shortages. The rising cost of bringing in freshwater to irrigate traditional crops may force producers to turn to salt water agriculture. Around the world, many agricultural areas are becoming less productive as salt levels in water supplies increase.
