Damage salt result type (Waterwijzer Overlay)
|DAMAGE_SALT||% yield loss||The loss of agricultural yield due to salt water irrigation or salt water seepage.|
This value is calculated for the present crop, using the highest and lowest groundwater levels adjusted by subsidence. When the salt concentration is too high, this leads to a reduction of water absorption of plant roots, increased toxicity, problems with nutrients absorption and decreased root growth.
- These yields are calculated by the Waterwijzer Landbouw API.
