Needs of drainage for sustainable crop production in the saline environment
Sustainability of irrigated agriculture in the arid and semi-arid regions of the country has faced the challenge of alkalinity/salinity problems associated with soils and irrigation waters. One of the major problems confronting present day agriculture is decreasing availability of good quality irrigation water. With increasing demand and decreasing availability of good quality waters, there is growing tendency among the farmers to use these poor quality waters for crop production. Indiscriminate use of poor quality waters in the absence of proper soil-water-crop management practices poses grave ...
