Integrated on-Farm Drainage Management (IFDM) is a system that manages subsurface saline drainage water on farm. Subsurface drainage water is not discharged into rivers or evaporation ponds but it is sequentially reused to irrigate crops of progressively increasing salt tolerance. The accumulated salt is recovered from the final brine using a solar evaporator and can be utilized. The study found the IFDM system to be an effective tool for salinity management as well as reclamation of salt-affected lands.
