Abstract : Research has shown that industrial sewage, as a rule, can be used for irrigation and that the limits to its use are dictated not so much by its content as by the absence of the necessary treatment as well as by natural-geographic and organizational-technical conditions (climate, soil, land contours, hydrogeological conditions, degree of salinity, presence of a water conservation zone, shortage of research on the part of health organs, etc.). The extensive utilization of sewage for irrigation and significant prospects for the development of this method has resulted in the necessity to elucidate existing achievements in published form and to exchange experience in this area. The present volume, prepared by the Central Scientific-Research Station for the Agricultural Utilization of Sewage (TsNISSV), has been assigned this task.
