Access to the article is free, however registration and sign-in are required. Making plants resistant to salty environments would be a boon for developing countries where poor land management has rendered large areas of arable land unfit for crop production. In a Perspective, Frommer and colleagues discuss how genetic engineering can be used to confer salt tolerance on plants (see Apse et al.) and explore the implications of this feat for improving crop production in developing countries.
