In the present book ‘Land Drainage’ the subject has been developed largely as a matter of applied soil physics. Drainage is considered herein as a means of reclaiming additional areas and making of wet lands more productive. Reclamation of arid and wet lands affords the chief means of increasing our food producing areas and drawing a greater proportion of our population into the rural areas. The whole subject matter has been divided into 24 chapters and 4 parts which includes field drainage, district drainage, special drainage problems and drainage surveying. Review questions, general references and laboratory exercises have also been included. The book will be useful not only for students and teachers but also for soil scientists, agronomist, agricultural engineers, environmentalist and extension workers.
