Agrotechnology For Dryland Farming. Dryland farming and dry farming encompass specific agricultural techniques for the non-irrigated cultivation of d farming is associated with drylands, areas characterized by a cool wet season (which charges the soil, with virtually all the moisture that the crops will receive prior to harvest) followed by a warm dry season.

They are also associated with arid conditions, areas prone. Dryland farming is frequently defined as crop production in areas with less than mm of annual precipitation, but this definition omits a critical component of the equation, evaporation potential.

Operatively, dryland farming is practiced where annual potential water evaporation exceeds annual precipitation. The example for the Central Great Plains of the United States in Fig.

collected over the past years. Database topics include crop rotation, legumes and grasses, soil quality, soil fertility, tillage and erosion. The book fills the need for an up-to-date comprehensive text on the Dry land Agriculture under varying situations for the students at under graduate and post graduate levels.

This book will be of immense use in imparting knowledge on the basic principles and applied aspects of the dry land farming for students, teachers, scientists, extension. The dynamics of dryland farming are different and harsh than irrigated farming.

So the problems of dryland agriculture are also unique. Water is the chief requirement for cropping. The crops in dryland or arid lands have to face the challenge of shortage of water more frequently.

Rainfall is the sole option for them to get water. Dryland Farming Page 3 Water that falls in arid regions may be of little use for crop plants because the amount is too small to penetrate the soil sufficiently, or it may run through a porous soil too quickly, or it may run off too quickly.

Furthermore, weedy species may be so adept at utilizing scarce water that they rob the water from crops.

From the beginning of agriculture until aboutincreased food production came almost entirely from expanding the cropland base. Sincehowever, the yield per unit of land area for major crops has increased dramatically.

Much of the increase in yields was because of increased inputs of. The book also highlights the challenges, which small farmers frequently encounter, and the opportunities or prospects, which abound in their farming operations.

Compartmentalized into three major sections, this chapter volume provides an account of thought-provoking scenarios and narratives, which are rich and well suited for policy.

Similarly, “organic farming” is based on acknowledgment of the harmful effects of Green Revolution technologies, but it can neither accomplish high productivity, nor ensure a better environment and better food products Similarly, rainfed/dry land farming falls short of matching the productivity that irrigated farming can provide.

The potential of organic farming, especially in dryland regions is discussed. Review concludes that organic farming is productive and sustainable.
