Egypt vitally needs sustained agricultural development to cope with the social and economic obligations that are the normal consequences of the continued high rates of population growth. This urgent need requires continuous scientifically based implementation of effective agricultural practices. Wheat and Rice is the most important cereal crops in Egypt. Salinity has reached a level of 19.5% of all irrigated-land (230 million ha of irrigated land, 45 million ha are salt-affected soils) and 2.1% of dry-land (1500 million ha of dryland agriculture, 32 million are salt-affected soils) agriculture worldwide. According to the FAO, around 1.5 million ha of land in Turkey have both salinity and sodicity problems (FAO, 2000). Total salt affected area in the world about 955 million hectares out of which 0.9 million ha in Egypt. The majority of salt-affected soils in Egypt are located in the northern-central part of the Nile Delta and on its eastern and western sides. Fifty five percent of the cultivated lands of northern Delta region are, twenty percent of the southern Delta and middle Egypt region and twenty five percent of the Upper Egypt region are salt-affected soils (FAO, 1995).
