Study is directed to setting soil moisture regime, irrigation norm and depth perfection, soil salination dynamics and ground water salinity under sprinkler irrigation and permanent horizontal drainage, water-salt balance preparation, crops yield definition. Soils-sierozem-meadow and meadow; heavy and medium loam. Ground water salinity is 8.5 g/l. Lands are leached after development. Irrigation method-sprinklers. Crops-alfalfa, sugar beet. Plot area is 14.6 ha. Drainage-subsurface with depth 3.5m. In result of long-term investigations is found that sprinkler irrigation on background of subsurface permanent drainage provides stable soil salt regime within layers 0-1 and l-2m. Non-saline and weakly saline soils prevailed, ground water salinity decreased, load on drainage during growing period was 0.15-0.32 of irrigation norm, optimal pre-irrigation moisture was recommended as 0.7-0.75 FFC.

Key words

Sprinkler irrigation; horizontal drainage; water-salt regime; ground water table; sugar beet; alfalfa
