What to do with 40-acres?

I have 40-acres in San Rafael Argentina with ample water rights. But a recent Agronomist Report says the land is too salty to grow vineyards, orchards of groves. I could cleanse the soil but it would require several years and a lot of chemicals.

Any ideas what I can do? No, I don’t want to raise Pet Rocks.

If someone can come up with a way to legitimately use this land?
I will provide the land and water.
I am not necessarily looking for money. I am open to some form of a partnership or a JV. Let me know.

Tom, I would cover the property with both Eucalyptus and Acacia for timber on the long term and honey bees on shorter term, between the trees meanwhile i would seed salt-tolerant shrubs and grasses for animal grazing.
If non of that interests you then maybe wind and solar.

Mike,

Thanks for the info and I did check it out. I guess my question is, and it’s almost impossible to get a straight answer from an Argentine Agronomist, is how long will it take to cleanse my soil and at what cost. My 40-acres is worth a lot more if I can plant vineyards or olive trees or fruit trees.
