Managing dryland salinity successfully requires treatment of both the causes and the symptoms.Treatment of the symptoms of salinity in a local area requires a targeted and site specific approach.

There are a range of different management options that can be combined to take account of the diverse climate, soils, hydrology and agricultural practices within a region.

Rehabilitating saline land can reduce the rate at which salinity is spreading and decrease the area of land affected.
