The practice of crop production in low-rainfall areas without irrigation.
The practice of crop production, without irrigation, where rainfall is deficient.
(crop science) Farming on non-irrigated land. Success is based on rainfall, moisture-conserving tillage, and drought-resistant crops.
Practice of crop production without irrigation in semiarid regions usually by using moisture-conserving farming techniques.
A system of producing crops in semi-arid regions (usually with less than 20 inches of annual rainfall) without irrigation. Dryland farmers often try to rebuild soil moisture by leaving the land fallow (unplanted) or mulched in alternate years, called summer fallowing.
Dryland farming is an agricultural technique for cultivating land which receives little rainfall. Dryland farming is used in the Great Plains, the Palouse plateau of Eastern Washington regions of North American and in other grain growing regions such as the steppes of Eurasia and Argentina. Dryland farming was introduced to the southern Russian Empire by Russian Mennonites under the influence of Johann Cornies, making the region the breadbasket of Russia.
