I can imagine two soils subjected to saltification:
- soils subjected to irrigation, natural or agricultural, or
- soils there the evaporation is high, causing a flow of water from
the watertable to the surface.
Further reading in Brady: "The nature and properties of SOILS"
I don't know how salt concentrations affect yeasts.
