If this is true then it really is interesting. With one bound (or several faltering steps) we could be free of the reliance on high-quality land which we need for crops globally. Questions around the level of salt tolerance, yield and so on must be answered. But it could be one of those win-wins where it is possible to increases wealth for people who own marginal land. I wonder if there is any chance that such crops could remediate land that has become saline through irrigation.
