It's an indication of too much salt in the soil,and it can ruin crops or make it virtually impossible to grow a productive crop. This documentary explores the cause of salinity and the potential solutions, some of which can be controversial. This provocative documentary informs both as a cautionary tale and also as an educational tool for farmers, soil scientist and ordinary citizens.
