Systematic Study of Arid Territories


Patterns of the formation of productive resources in soils of arid territories are revealed. The functioning of an independent category of soil production resources is justified, and the parameters of factors associated with the seasonal cycles of the soil hydrochemical properties are described. The production processes are shown to be specific by the soil types and their independence on the sizes of functioning soil areas. The technologies of the development of productive resources with the cultivation of plants with a short vegetative cycle have been experimentally studied based on the use of natural laws of salt and water accumulation.
