Dryland farming

Dryland farming is rain-fed agriculture in arid or semi-arid areas, and growing crops and raising livestock without irrigation in semi-arid and dry sub-humid regions with minimal rainfall. Dryland farming systems depend on rain and snow for their necessary moisture. It differs from arid zone systems, irrigation is essential, and from humid zone systems, where moisture is adequate or surplus for crops. See also water footprint, water scarcity
