Author(s):

Abstract:
Salt affected soils are very unproductive. Growth and development of crop were hampered by the ill effects of salt affected soils. Due to the physiological stress imposed by the salts, crops fail to uptake essential mineral nutrients and moisture from the soil in the vicinity of its root zone. Finger millet is the widely grown crop in the arid and semi-arid tropics of our country. But most of the arid and semi-arid tropics of our country are dominated with salt affected soils. Hence after realising the importance of this crop, we tried to review the performance of finger millet under salt affected soils.
