The horizontal leaching technique has been developed for the reclamation of salinised, heavy clay soils. It enables excess salt to be removed from clay soils that are deep enough (deeper than 1m) and have low permeability (less than 0.1m/day). Such soils are commonly found in irrigated plains in arid and semi-arid countries. This manual provides sufficient technical information to enable implementation where suitable.
