Atriplex nummularia: Highly drought and salt tolerant shrub, well-suited for rangeland rehabilitation and for providing quality fodder for livestock when herbage availability is low. Arid and semi-arid rangelands face increasing climate variability and grazing pressure as the world’s demand for food increases. ICARDA is introducing drought-tolerant species as a crucial means of assisting rangeland rehabilitation efforts, helping to conserve rapidly-depleting water resources and maintain grazing at sustainable levels. The result: a win-win situation for rural communities and the environment.
