An international conference was held at Texas Tech University in 1976 to assess the current state of knowledge about managing saline water for irrigation and to present new information on how to cope with salinity. Plant scientists, soil scientists, and engineers representing 20 countries participated in the sessions. Their findings are presented in this volume. The tone of the papers is one of optimism that moderately saline water can be used successfully for irrigation if what is known already and what is being learned now is used effectively. Mixed with the optimism is the realization that careless management of saline irrigation water can be disasterous to the land and, more importantly, to the people living on that land.
