The extension of irrigated agriculture is essential to fulfilling the mounting demand for food and fibre from a growing population which is anticipated to reach about 10 billion individuals in 2050. Lacking the necessary drainage, this extension can bring about salinization issues in irrigated regions. Continuous irrigation over many years with no adequate drainage services has led to huge agricultural regions becoming unproductive. Salinization problems linked to poor drainage are widespread… 

The Issue of Groundwater Salinization in Coastal Areas of the Mediterranean Region: A Review

The Mediterranean area is undergoing intensive demographic, social, cultural, economic, and environmental changes. This generates multiple environmental pressures such as increased demand for water

Consortium between Groundwater Quality and Lint Yield in Cotton Belt Areas

The agriculture sector of Pakistan mainly depends on freshwater from groundwater resources. Deterioration of these resources adversely affected crop yields due to climate change and human activities.

Multivariate Analysis for Assessing Irrigation Water Quality: A Case Study of the Bahr Mouise Canal, Eastern Nile Delta

Water scarcity and suitable irrigation water management in arid regions represent tangible challenges for sustainable agriculture. The current study aimed to apply multivariate analysis and to

Soil salinisation as a land degradation process in the dried bed of the North-eastern Aral Sea, Kazakhstan

Soil salinisation is among the most well-known land degradation processes determining the ecological state of the land surface. Anthropogenic soil salinisation, wind erosion and soil alkalinisation

GIS-based spatial prediction of poor-drainage areas using frequency ratio: a case study of Tekirdag Province, Turkey

The present study aims to identify the distribution and the sensibility ratios of the poorly drained areas of Tekirdag Province. GIS-based frequency ratio (FR) was used to detect areas that are

Relation between soil solution composition and petiole cellular extract of crops in western Mexico

Crop fertilization greatly impacts food production. However, insufficient applications can lead to poor yields. On the other hand, an excessive application leads to soil and aquifers pollution. In

Profiling ponded soil surface in saturated seepage into drain-line sink: Kalashnikov’s method of lateral leaching revisited

Two boundary value problems are solved for potential steady-state 2D Darcian seepage flows towards a line sink in a homogeneous isotropic soil from a ponded land surface, which is not flat but



Poor-drainage-induced salinization of agricultural lands: Management through structural measures


The development of irrigated agriculture is essential to feed the growing world population. Nevertheless, without proper drainage provisions, this development can result in salinization and rising
