Salinization Definition from Science & Technology Dictionaries & Glossaries
Agricultural Glossary/yigini2004
The process of accumulation of salts in soil.
Fishery Glossary
The accumulation of soluble salts at the surface or at some point below the surface of the soil profile, to levels that have negative effects on plant growth and/or on soils. This occurs due to water evaporation leaving behind salts that were dissolved in water. Choudhury and Jansen (1997)
Salinization Definition from Encyclopedia Dictionaries & Glossaries
English Wikipedia - The Free Encyclopedia
Soil salinity is the  salt content in the soil; the process of increasing the salt content is known as salinization. Salts occur naturally within soils and water. Salination can be caused by natural processes such as mineral weathering or by the gradual withdrawal of an ocean. It can also come about through artificial processes such as irrigation.

The accumulation of salts in soil to the extent that plant growth is inhibited. This is a common problem when crops are irrigated in arid regions; much of the water evaporates and salts accumulated in the soil. Also see Leaching Requirement.
