      Agricultural Drainage Is The Removal Of Excess Water From The Soil Surface And/or Soil Profile Of Cropland, Through Either Gravity Or Fictitious Means. The Two Main Rewsons For Improving The Drainage On Agricultural Laand Are For Soil Preservation And Enhancing Crop Production. The Management Goal Of Agricultural Drainage Is To Maintain A Salt Balqnce In The Crop Root Zone In Arid Areas And Proper Soil Water Balance In Humid Areas. Drainage Water From Different Locations And /or Facilities Will Have Different Disposition Characteristics. Poor Quality Water Should Be Separated From Good Quality Water. If Drainage Water Is Ujsuitable For Reuse, It Should Be Dosposed Of In A Sink Of_Lower Quality Water. In Recent Years, Public Concern Has Increased About The Nature Of Agricultural Drainage And The Impact Of Agricultural Drainage Improvements On The Quality Of Water Resources And Environment. This Publication Is Designed To Help Citizens To Understand The Purpose And Nature Of Agricultural Drainage Systems And Water Quality Issues.
