Many natural waters contain impurities that make them directly harmful to crops... Knowledge of a water supply's quality, assessed by chemical analysis, is essential in determining its usefulness in an irrigation system... When irrigation water containing residual alkalinity is used on clay soils containing exchangeable calcium and magnesium, sodium from the residual alkalinity in the water will replace calcium and magnesium in the soil...

Salt-tolerant plants possess the ability to either tolerate high levels of sodium or to exclude sodium from their system... Modern bread wheat is naturally more salt tolerant than durum wheat because it has a gene that helps exclude sodium from the xylem system, which stops it from reaching the leaves... The absence of the gene in durum wheat means it takes up about five times more sodium than its bread wheat cousins...

Soil salinity refers to a high concentration of salts in the landscape, mainly common salt or sodium chloride (NaCl), which has a negative impact on soil and water quality... A related protein in the test plant Arabidopsis, AtNHX1, has a very well-characterised role in salt tolerance... A deeper understanding of the mechanisms underlying this salt tolerance will be critical to the use of NHX proteins in producing transgenic salt-tolerant crop species...

Wholegrains help cut blood pressure.. Grain-based foods such as bread and breakfast cereals are coming under increasing fire from many health professionals because they make a significant contribution to sodium (salt) in the Australian diet... Along with other well-established benefits of eating wholegrain foods regularly - lower risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity and some cancers - international research now also shows that eating wholegrains regularly (four slices of wholegrain bread or equivalent per day) can lower the risk of developing high blood pressure by about 20 per cent, compared with those who eat virtually no wholegrains...

The adverse effects of sodicity on plant growth are reasonably well understood; differences in soils and plant characteristics mean that this understanding cannot be converted into a single set of reliable rules.. Addressing the stark statistic, Professor Neal Menzies, presenting at the GRDC Update in Coonabarabran, said growers and agronomists needed to complement their knowledge of the underlying soil system with careful observation to craft a solution appropriate to each situation... Professor Neal Menzies from the University of Queensland's School of Agriculture and Food Sciences advises growers and agronomists dealing with sodic soils to complement their knowledge of the underlying bio-physical soil system with careful observation to craft an appropriate solution to their situation...
