A study published by Mukhopadhyay et al., 2023 investigates the long-term impact of subsurface drainage (SSD) on soil quality restoration and sugarcane productivity in waterlogged saline Vertisols in India. By using soil and water samples together with a farmer field survey, the authors showed that SSD significantly reduced soil salinity and improved various soil properties, leading to increased sugarcane yields by up to 585.5%. Farmers' perceptions indicated that SSD technology could substantially improve soil conditions and crop yields, and large-scale adoption of the technology will support the Sustainable Development Goals related to Land, No Poverty, and Zero Hunger in saline soils of India.
