The aim of research was to study the advanced reclamation techniques to deal with the irrigated land degradation (the rise of the groundwater, resalting, dehumification, etc.). Research was undertaken in some farms in the dry steppe zone of Saratov Trans–Volga region. The object of research was degrated (hydrogenic, solonized, saline, fractured) irrigated dark chestnut soils.

Low adoption of sustainable intensification technologies hinders achievement of their potential impacts on increasing agricultural productivity. Proper targeting of locations to scale-out particular technologies is a key determinant of the rate of adoption. Targeting locations with similar biophysical and socio-economic characteristics significantly increases the probability of adoption.
