    This study deals with the semi-detailed soil survey of the Upper Hajar area. The objective of this activity is to make a comprehensive: soil resource inventory of the study area, with particular emphasis on areas with agricultural potential, and advise on suitable management practices, taking into account the climatic conditions as well. The report covers various aspects of the soil resources, including .factors related to soil development, methods of field and laboratory study, soil suitabiliti es for various climatically adapted crops, and associated land husbandry practices. Many of the soils in .the study area have formed under a more or less continuous process of sediment deposition by wadi floods, which has given rise to a stratified surface layer. Such soils have been rated as the most suitable arable soils (unit W). They are deep, have a finer texture than the other soils in the study area, and hence possess a good water holding capacity. Because of their alluvial origin, they a re also reasonably fertile. Date-palms dominate these areas.

    The book of proceedings of the GSAS21 contains the papers presented during the

    Global Symposium on Salt-affected Soils

    that was held on 20-22 October 2022. The papers provide the up-to-date scientific knowledge and practical solutions for mapping, assessment, rehabilitation and sustainable management of saline and sodic soils as well as policy recommendations on actions needed to manage salt-affected soils, prevent soil degradation, and to upscale good practices and technologies on these soils.
