Abstract:

One of the effective means for upgrading fodder-producing areas is to irrigate them with waste water. The experience of farms in Moscow, Leningrad, Kaliningradskaya, Volgogradskaya, and other oblasts in the RSFSR, the Ukrainian SSR, Latvian SSR and others indicates that meadows and pastures irrigated with sewage water grow 7,000-10,000 fodder units per hectare. Research and studies of the used field irrigation systems indicate not only the high effectiveness of the use of waste water in the irrigation of fodder crop land but, the high water retention effect, since each hectare uses up to 6,000-7,000 cubic meters of waste water per year. Computations indicate that factual possibilities for the development of waste water irrigation of fodder crops exist in many parts of our country, totaling an area of 2.6 million hectares, with an annual use of about 13 cubic kilometers of waste water.
