RICE IRRIGATION TECHNOLOGY ON SALINE LANDS
Rice production on the irrigated lands of the Syr Darya river basin (the Aral Sea region) is a traditional specialization of the agricultural sector. If on the mildly saline soil rice yield reaches more than 5 t/ha, then on highly saline soil rice yield is below 2 t/ha, which makes its cultivation not profitable. Those lands degrade and eventually excluded from agricultural use. We studied the rice irrigation technology of saline lands, which enables to provide rice yield of 4 tons per hectare and above.
