Soil is crucial ordinary non-renewable source constructed over an extended time period because of weathering of rocks and to that end enrichment of natural subject. Soil presents habitat for various microorganisms and serves as a traditional medium for plant progress, thereby supplying the crops with anchorage, meals and water to maintain the expansion. Soil additionally serves as a common sink for every type of toxins, purifies flooring water and is an immense reserve of carbon within the universe. The function of soils to supply environment providers, upkeep of environmental/human healthiness and making sure the nutrients defense makes it because the most vital and easy normal source. Soil technological know-how is helping us to problematic and know how the soils supply most of these prone. Soil technology additionally offers us the elemental wisdom facing the beginning of the soil mother or father fabric, weathering of guardian fabric and the formation of soils, morphological, physico-chemical and organic positive factors of soils, type of soils and function of soils within the provision and upkeep of surroundings prone, nutrients safety and environmental caliber. This ebook encompasses some of the techniques, capabilities and behavior of soils very comprehensively to acquaint the scholars of soil, plant and environmental sciences approximately their position to accomplish diverse agricultural and environmental functions.

Due to these ROS species, membrane damage was observed which leads to cellular injury and toxicity cause by salinization in various crop plants for example pea tomato, mustard, soybean and rice (Ahmad et al. 2009; Dionisio-Sese and Tobita 1998; Gueta-Dahan et al. 1997; Mittova et al. 2004; Hakeem et al. 2012). 2 Nutrition Imbalance There are specific ions which have direct toxic effect on plants (Scianna 2002). Among these ions are boron, sodium and chloride which have negative effect on crop emergence, plant growth and crop development.

Na+ and Cl−(Grattan and Grieve 1998). It is reported that induction of Na and Cl concentrations while decrease in the concentration of other ions Ca, P, N, K and Mg due to rise in NaCl concentration (El-Wahab 2006). As salinity directly affects the nutrient availability, uptake and its distribution or transport in plant, consequently nutrition imbalance arises. It is repeatedly reported the effect of salinity in lowering nutrient accumulation and uptake in plants (Hu and Schmidhalter 2005; Rogers et al.
