Short summary
It is shown that in agriculture technologies soil mulching with plant remains leads to increase in the ratio of actual transpiration to potential one and to increase in the yield of crops. Soil mulching with plant remains in combination with subsurface cultivation is the most efficient agricultural mode for the regions of the steppe and forest-steppe zones of the East-European (Russian) plain. This technology is most promising for development of agriculture in these regions.
