AbstractEvaluates afforestation techniques of waterlogged sites in India for about three dozen woody perennials. Of three methods of planting evaluated (ridge-trench, subsurface, and furrow), the furrow technique resulted in greatest plant survival and growth. Acacia farnesiana was found to be one of the most promising species for afforestation of these saline soils.
