Land reclamation can be accomplished with various distinctive techniques. The most basic strategy includes filling the region with a lot of substantial shake and concrete, and at that point loading it with earth and soil until the desired state is achieved. The procedure is called “infilling “and the material used to fill the space is for the most part called “infill”. The draining of submerged wetlands is frequently used to recover arrive for rural utilize.
Profound bond blending is normally utilized under circumstances in which the material uprooted by either digging or depleting might be defiled and consequently should be contained. The problem of land degradation has been acute in certain areas, especially in the arid and semi-arid regions.
Tremendous extents of land assets are undermined with debasement at a quick pace. The debasement procedure of soils is representing an extraordinary risk imperiling nourishment security for the present as well as for future ages. Corruption of the environment, especially the land, and the noteworthy loss of efficiency of this valuable asset would adversely affect the survival of a larger part of human and domesticated animal populaces.
Available reclamation technologies have been adopted on a limited scale by the farmers to reclaim their lands. The study has indicated that farmers adopt a score of strategies to treat the problem. These include:
These technologies are not spread effectively among the affected farm households, and there is a big gap that has to be bridged by the effective dissemination of technologies through demonstrations at the farm level.
The selection of filtering could bring about an incremental yield of 14 quintals for every hectare on saline soils of the head and mid areas. The developing of tolerant paddy assortments could produce an extra yield of 9 quintals and 11 quintals for each hectare on saline soils of the head and mid areas, separately. And finally, the reception of green manuring could upgrade the product yields by 13 quintals and 12 quintals on saline and waterlogged soils of the mid area, separately.
For decades, Egypt has tried to increase its agricultural area through reclamation of desert land. The significance of land reclamation goes beyond the size of the reclaimed area and number of new settlers, and has been important to Egyptian agricultural policies since the revolution of 1952. This paper examines from a micro-perspective, the life of Egyptians resettled in the new lands. The first part of the paper provides an introduction to the discourses of land reclamation, to the policies of reclaimed land distribution, and to the background of the settlers. The second part is based on fieldwork in a village in the new lands; it is inhabited by graduates who have received land under the Mubarak Project. The analysis shows that they move there in hope of making a better life, especially for their children. Nevertheless, the settlers have difficulties building a sense of belonging to the new villages, and lack of good schools and other public services may cause families to split up. For some, however, resettlement in the new lands entails new social and economic possibilities. The paper concludes that while land reclamation may not be ecologically or economically sustainable, the new lands provide settlers with new opportunities.
