There has been a tendency to decrease in the amount of precipitation falling in the spring and summer in recent years, which often leads to an increase in moisture deficit for crops. Since almost all vegetable crops are characterized by increased demands on the water regime of the soil, a lack of moisture leads to a decrease in their water consumption and, accordingly, to crop losses. Understanding the consequences of increased climate aridity in the republic is gradually returning interest in irrigation. Feasibility studies show that it is beneficial to use irrigation in the production of vegetable products in Belarus
