    Dryland agriculture. dryland agriculture. Dryland farming can be a risky business. In the semi-arid High Plains, farmers manage to grow crops in the face of extremely variable weather and limited rainfall. Our goal is to improve the resilience of dryland cropping systems through the identification, evaluation, and communication of innovations.   Book Summary: Dry land agriculture is of more consequence now than ever because the worlds dependence on food produced in dry land areas is even greater. In recognition of this, and the fact that global food supply is increasingly interconnected, this volume takes a world view of dryland production continent by : Subba Reddy.

Dryland farming is a special case of rainfed agriculture practiced in arid and semiarid regions in which annual precipitation is about 20–35% of potential evapotranspiration. Conditions of moderate-to-severe moisture stress occur during a substantial part of the year, greatly limiting yield potential, and in which farming emphasizes water.

We hope that you find this book to be a valuable asset to your increased understanding of dryland agriculture and that it stimulates further scientific inquiries into this important worldwide subject.
