Irrigating with Salty Water Causes Salinity in the Soil
By adding salts to irrigation water, humans can increase the salinity of soils. By providing appropriate drainage water to remove extra salts from the soil, proper irrigation management helps avoid salt accumulation. Salt accumulations can be caused by disrupting drainage systems that facilitate leaching. The rise in saline groundwater and the accumulation of salt in irrigation water is known as irrigation salinity. Large amounts of irrigation water are used, which raises groundwater levels and mobilises salt locally. When the water utilised to irrigate comes from saline sources, the salinity of the irrigation is exacerbated.
