Studies are dedicated to development of secondary saline lands by summer capital leaching on background of rice crop, intensification of permanent closed drainage drainability by temporary drainage, establishment of water-salt regimes formation dynamics of leached lands, workability of permanent closed drainage and temporary drains, flooded areas impact on adjacent areas as well as lands reclamation state maintenance. Climate is continental. Relief is smooth, planned. Lands of EPP were in agricultural crop rotation, but they were estranged because of intensive processes of secondary salinization. Soils - serozem-meadow, salt spots, chloride-sulfate type. Ground water - on depth 1.6-2.8 m, salinity degree 24-42 g/1, sulfate-chloride and chloride-sulfate type. EPP area (net) for leaching is 25 ha (1966), 50 ha (1967), 29 ha (1968) Irrigation network - flume, efficiency 0.95-0.98. Water allocation in checks from earthen channels, efficiency 0.8-0.85. Collector-drainage network open collectors, closed drains with depth 2.2-3.8 m, temporary drains - 0.6-1.0 m. EPP is equipped by observation devices. Leaching was carried out in summer period through rice sowing under permanent water supply to maintain permanent layer in checks. Main result of studies is introduction of about 1.8 th. ha strongly saline lands in agricultural rotation according to developed recommendations. Capital leaching costs are compensated at the expense of rice production, which crop yield capacity is 4.0-5.3 t/ha. Cotton crop yield capacity on leached lands - 2.4-2.8 t/ha.
