The deficit of water balance for vegetables and fodder crops has significantly increased on the territory of Belarus
in recent decades. Maintaining a sufficiently high level of soil fertility and increasing the efficiency of agriculture in such conditions requires additional moisture. The performed economic calculations showed that irrigation of vegetables in open ground and forage crops (for example, Japanese millet) in the Republic of Belarus is a profitable reclamation measure.
