Dry regions receive low rainfall which consequently affects the farming in these areas. Moisture is the ultimate requirement for a healthy harvest, the deficiency of which leads to crop failure, a common problem in drought prone areas. Dry farming, also called dryland farming, is a technique by employing which farmers of arid or semi-arid areas can benefit a lot.
Dryland Farming Characteristics
• Practiced in dry season and involves utilising the leftover rainfall moisture of the winters.
• Beans, corn, tomatoes, grapes and pumpkin are some of the common dryland crops.
• Each particular plant is given land area large enough to get the required moisture for its growth.
• Using crops, machinery and farming techniques specially meant for dry farming.
• Eliminating weeds from roots so that they do not steal away the moisture.
• In winter season, the stubbles and residues of the harvested crop are left on the farm to trap the snow and rainfall moisture.
• Terracing or making furrows to allow the land to trap maximum moisture.
• Sowing the seeds at a level from where they can easily absorb the soil moisture.
• Conserving the topsoil cover by means of strip farming, reduced tilling and windbreaks.
• As there are risks of crop failure, thus, dryland farming should be done with minimum or no use of chemical fertilisers or pesticides. Organic manure is a good alternative to induce crop growth.
Thus, every farm land can yield a good harvest if treated with the suitable farming technique. At AGROCORP, we deeply understand this dictum and thus use special farming techniques to grow investment crops in Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka. Though the soil and climate of these regions are quite favorable for successful farming but the use of organic farming, crop rotation, drip irrigation and other framing techniques speed up the growth of the crop and our investors reap huge benefits. Tomatoes, corn, turmeric, Melia Dubia and chilli are some of the crops that we cultivate on our agro-farms.
