In Central Asia soil salinization is a wide-spread concern. Biomass harvested from the moderate salt-tolerant species Haloxylon aphyllum and Apocynum pictum can be used as fodder as well as for textile fibers and medicinal purposes, respectively. These plants offer opportunities to generate income from saline soils.
