One of the main factors, that is presently constraining the farming industry in Russia's humid zone, is over-irrigation and waterlogging of agricultural areas. Rehabilitation was carried out in the 80s. The paper recommends that land drainage should be expanded in up to 7-8M ha of humid zone waterlogged areas. There is also a need in the future to promote ecologically balanced agrolandscapes.
