ABSTRACT
This paper is a brief reviev of studies on red soil water properties and its management in the tropics and subtropics of China. Although annual precipitation is more than evaporation, there is still seasonal draught in the area because of the uneven distribution of both rainfall and evaporation. Red soil structure is another reason for the seasonal draught. Several measures for alleviating this da-mage are also discussed in the paper.
