Russian media about implementation of water-saving technologies in Uzbekistan


At the scientific portal “Ecology of production” posted an article on the issues of water management and efficient cultivation of agricultural land in Uzbekistan.

The publication reports that only in 2008-2012, 748 billion 700 million soums has been directed to this sector. As a result of the measures taken the ground water were kept at an optimum level. It is possible to reduce the area of ​​strongly and medium saline lands, as well as to increase the average yield of cotton fields at 2-2.5 tons per hectare, and rice yield at 2.5-3 kg/ha.

As noted in the material, removing crops that do not require copious irrigation, helped to reduce water consumption in irrigated agriculture. In addition, significantly reduced water-loving cotton planting area from 2 million down to 1 million 200 thousand hectares, and rice – from 180 thousand to 40 thousand hectares.

The Russian edition emphasizes that today Uzbek scientists’ study aimed at improving the system of drip irrigation, and the introduction of advanced foreign technology. For now, this type of irrigation is already being used in some areas of Uzbekistan, and for accumulation of moisture in the soil for the purpose of water conservation in the cultivation of crops used the experience of French scientists on the use of chemical polymers – hydrogels. All this allows to increase the annual yield.

The article also reports on work carried out by large enterprises of water conservancy country destination, the efficient use of water resources, as well as management of state based on principles of basin irrigation control systems, as well as the introduction of market principles at all levels of water use.

In addition, reader’s attention is drawn to measures taken to support further development of science in agriculture, expansion of scale of scientific achievements usage in practice.
