Increasing the efficiency of cultivation of improved land

Internationale Zeitschrift der Landwirtschaft (4): 308-311

Increasing the efficiency of cultivation of improved land

Despite heavy investment there are still considerable gaps and disparities in the productivity of the 19 Mha of irrigated and the 14 Mha of drained land in the USSR. The most modern technologies are not always applied in the expensively improved land and necessary fertilizers are often not available to allow the best use to be made of it.
