Study is devoted to choice of effective methods of irrigation based on irrigation technique elements rationalization, optimal parameters setting up, soil water regime management and productive water use. Pilot plot is located on pre-mountain plain of Karatau ridge. Climate is continental. Relief is hilly. Soils light sierozems, heavy loam; on depth of 0.5-0.7 m are non-saline; beneath are saline (0.8-1.5 % IDS). Ground water table is 2.5-3.5 m, salinity is 6-8g/l, sulfate-chloride and chloride-sulfate. Irrigated area is 4 th. ha (net), Land use efficiency is 0.8. Study showed that changing irrigation depth and technology it is possible to manage reclamation processes. Recommendations are given on furrow irrigation technique elements.

Key words
