Uzbekistan’s economy depends to a great extent on agriculture, particularly on revenues from irrigated cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) production. Since poor soil fertility and high soil salinity are the major obstacles in crop production, conservation agriculture (CA) may offer the potential to increase soil fertility and crop yields, reduce soil salinity and, thus, save water used for leaching salts out of the soil. Furthermore, compared to the wealth of data on CA in rain fed areas worldwide… 
Combining permanent beds and residue retention with nitrogen fertilization improves crop yields and water productivity in irrigated arid lands under cotton, wheat and maize
Intensive soil tillage and mismanagement of irrigation water and fertilizers are increasing production costs, reducing soil fertility and crop water productivity and threatening the sustainability of
A Review of Soil-Improving Cropping Systems for Soil Salinization
TLDR
The analysis shows that besides case-specific optimization of irrigation and drainage management, combinations of soil amendments, conditioners, and residue management can contribute to significant reductions of soil salinity while significantly increasing crop yields and highlights that conservation agriculture can also achieve the higher yields required for upscaling and sustaining crop production.
Conservation Agriculture for combating land degradation in Central Asia: a synthesis
This manuscript reviews scientific findings on agricultural systems, associated land degradation and selected remedies such as Conservation Agricultural (CA) practices to counterbalance these. In
Soils and Soil Ecology in Khorezm
The current status of the agricultural soils in Khorezm is closely linked to their development influenced by past river flows and more recent human-managed irrigation and drainage practices. The
Tillage and nitrogen fertilization effects on yield and nitrogen use efficiency of irrigated cotton
Abstract Management practices may influence yield and nitrogen (N) use efficiency of irrigated cotton ( Gossypium hirsutum L.) in irrigated arid lands such as those of the Aral Sea basin. A field
Opportunities for Smallholder Farmers to Benefit From Conservation Agricultural Practices
Abstract Conservation agriculture (CA) practices combine the use of soil cover, crop combinations, and reduced tillage. There has been widespread promotion of CA practices in southern Africa. The aim

Conservation agriculture in Central Asia—What do we know and where do we go from here?
Abstract Rainfed and irrigated agricultural systems have supported livelihoods in the five Central Asian countries (CAC) for millennia, but concerns for sustainability and efficient use of land and
Analysing irrigated crop rotation patterns in arid Uzbekistan by the means of remote sensing: A case study on post-Soviet agricultural land use
Abstract In Central Asia, actual cotton rotation practices are repeatedly believed to resemble “Soviet cropping conditions” with continuous cotton sequences of six years or more. We investigated
Managing water and fertilizer for sustainable agricultural intensification
Nutrient use efficiency (NUE) is a critically important concept in the evaluation of crop production systems. It can be greatly impacted by fertilizer management as well as by soiland plant-water
