Three years of testing new sustainable land management technologies

Author: Anatoly Zeiliguer



Major soil degradation problems:
  • ground water logging;
  • secondary soil salinization;
  • non-uniform irrigated soil properties.
Two SLM technologies at local and regional scales are proposed:
  • drip irrigation of vegetables instead of furrow irrigation;
  • precision irrigation of forage instead of “overall” irrigation.



2007 Growing vegetables, Technology, Experimental plot, Results, Stakeholders


In the middle of tomato growing season, an empty well was filled with fresh water harvested from infiltrated snow melted water. The well was excavated in a local mezo-depression to collect/use lens of fresh water in salty ground water for drip irrigation. Not enough water for drip irrigation – water volume capacity of well and tomato plot demand was estimated with error.



2008 Growing vegetables, Technology, Experimental plot, Results, Stakeholders

Three years (2007-2009) of successful drip irrigation implementation/application at backyard of SOBOLEV family. Romashky village in the middle of semi-desert territory with very scarce water resources, Pallasovsky District, Volgograd Region, Russia. Dissemination of drip irrigation technology is proceeding at Romashky village and at the southern more dry part (village Elton) of Pallasovsky District.
