Abstract

Increasing water scarcity and increasing rate of livestock development in the Republic of Kazakhstan require using new water-saving irrigation methods. Using new forage crops will make it possible to use irrigation water most productively and to achieve the maximum yield with high soil-feeding capacity, while using the minimum amount of irrigation water. Therefore, the main goal of the research was developing a technology of cultivating new fodder crops with mist sprinkling. To save water with optimal water and nutrient regimes, agro technical operations for cultivating crops such as grain and new (for the southern region of Kazakhstan) sorghum and millet, as well as optimal modes of their irrigation with mist sprinkling have been developed.
