    Analysis of organizing, amount of work and financing of reclamation activities is presented during State Program for conservation and use of reclaimed lands for 2011-2015. Specific indexes of spending of major activities by types of reclamation are found for 2011-2015, some changes in reclamation process are proposed as well.

    Belarus represents of the moisty countries of Europe: total area of hydromorphic and boggy soils composed almost 80% (8 mln hectares) in the beginning of XIX century. Amelioration and land reclamation promoting dewatering of potentially fertile lands appeared the most important problems of agricultural science and had been evaluated since the middle of XIX. In Gory-Goretsky agronomic Institute (modern Belarusian State Academy of Agriculture) drainage appears a separate school subject since 1853. Annual conferences concerned to land reclamation had been established this year.

    In a course of the research there was studied hydro-meteorological need for irrigation of mineral soils of the Republic of Belarus on the basis of quantitative assessment of their natural heat and moisture conditions. As a result of realized research there was concluded that in conditions of unstable regime of natural hydrological and thermal regimes of mineral soils it was impossible to receive high and, most importantly, stable over the years yields on most of the agricultural lands without the use of irrigation reclamation.

    Investigation of the process of transformation of the properties of drained peat soil appears a serious scientific problem for the conditions of the Republic of Belarus. The article deals with the research of regularities of peat deposit settlement after drainage. The most important factors, determining the process of peat settlement are outlined. Among them are: the depth of ground water reduction, initial power capacity of peat cover, degree of peat settlement degradation, time factor. The results of investigation over the peat deposit settlement have been presented.

    Lands of industrial regions are often subjected to long-term contamination with heavy metals such as cadmium, zinc, lead, copper etc. Heavy metals circulate mostly due to water flows, and in the areas with humid (micro) climate, the heavy metal pollution propagates from sources with increased intensity because of acidic environment and soil water logging. We established that natural or artificial drainage effectively increases the washout of heavy metal pollutants due to subsurface and groundwater flows.

    In a course of the research there were described the methodological approaches to optimization of the use of resources allocated for the operation of melioration systems and the use of reclaimed land. As a result of realized research there was estimated theoretical and actual productivity of reclaimed land in Gorki and Kalinkovichi districts of the Republic of Belarus with the proposed economic and mathematical model.
