Study is directed to soil-reclamation processes trend revealing under saline drainage water use in place of its origin, drainage outflow and soil water-salt regime management under saline water use for irrigation for land productivity increase. Climate is sharply continental, relief-hilly. Soils-carbonate Ground water depth is 6-10m salinity is 2.5-3.5g/l, sulfate-hydro-carbonate. Drainage effluent salinity is 1.5-4.5g/l. Plot area is 84.0ha. Irrigation network-concrete flumes. Drainage-open horizontal with depth 3.5-4m. Package of software is developed for soil-reclamation processes forecast under irrigation by fresh water and drainage effluent. Method of drainage effluent's chemical reclamation for soil alkalinity prevention with gypsum application. Recommendations are made on soil productivity improvement under irrigation by saline water.
