Modern Land Drainage is a fully renewed and extended edition of Land Drainage: Planning and Design of Agricultural Drainage systems, which was first published in 1983 (Batsford, London). The book is based on traditional drainage methods for rain-fed agriculture in the humid temperature zone. Significant parts are devoted to drainage for salinity control of irrigated land in (semi-) arid zones, and to drainage of rice land in the humid tropics. Institutional, management and maintenance aspects are extensively covered, as well as the mitigation of adverse impacts of drainage interventions on the environment. Moreover, various applications for drainage, design and management are treated.
