Abstract

The runoff of suspended substances (SS), nitrogen, and phosphorus by enforced draining during the ploughing season was calculated from experiments in two paddy fields. The area of a paddy field was 3000m2. The total fluxes were 33 kg (SS), 85 g (total-N), and 46 g (total-P) in Field A, with a small decrease in water levels (8mm), 110kg (SS), 589 g (total-N), and146 g (total-P) in Field B with a major decrease in water levels (72mm). Furthermore, the nitrogen/ phosphorus ratios (mol ratios) of the waste water by the enforced draining were 4.1 (Field A) and 8.8 (Field B). In comparison with N/P of the phytoplankton (16), it was found that the phosphorus flowed out efficiently with the enforced draining. Increasing the supply of the phosphorus to Lake Biwa is not desirable in view of the current problems of eutrophication. The careless water management of paddy fields was a crucial factor in any plan to improve the water quality of Lake Biwa.
