This study identifies that there are more than 50 species of halophytes that have potential to be introduced into cultivation in arid areas of Russia. It concludes that halophyte agriculture, using saline waters for irrigation could become a large source of medicinal and oil-yielding forage crops, as well as an effective means of biotic melioration for degraded agricultural areas.
