Saline soils are characterized by an excess amount of soluble salts and sodium, which can be changed in the soil water. This excess of salt changes the physical and chemical properties of soil, creating an environment that inhibits crops. Therefore, the accumulation of salts in the soil is one of the main reasons for a low level of agricultural production. At this point, one of the most pressing issues worldwide is overpopulation, which highlights further the issue of sustainable food production. As a result, in recent years, more emphasis has been placed on research and soils affected by salinity on finding ways to improve them. To effectively address this problem it is necessary to research in terms of the physical properties of these soils chemical and microbiologycal and the effective implementation of scientific discoveries and the sustainable management. This paper investigates some indicators of salinity and the correlation between them, to characterize the soils affected by salinity and to show that it creates problems in agriculture, and presenting some plant species tolerant to salt.
