Abstract

Plant establishment problems on salt-affected soils provided the stimulus for a recent invention. Department of Agriculture Research Officer C. V. Malcolm has found, after several years of field trials, that the only treatment which repeatedly gives good establishment of shrubs on salt land is an organic mulch.

By careful field observation and a survey of the world literature, several other aspects of establishment were also judged to be important.
