Study is directed to management of soil reclamation regime, combat salination, land productivity improvement by means of ground water abstraction providing water-salt management on base of leaching regime of irrigation. Soil salination type is sulfate, chloride-sulfate. Shuruzyak massif area is 68.4 th.ha, Bayaut massif- 48.7 th.ha. Land use efficiency is 0.54-0.76. Ground water salinity is 15-25 g/l, sulfate-chloride. There are 212 vertical wells in Shuruzyak and 89 wells in Bayaut massif. There are balance sites with area 100-500 ha. Study shows that strategy of land desalination is effective method of soil water-salt regime regulation.
