Dry Farming

Dry Farming is an agricultural technique that allows farmers to grow crops without irrigation. It utilizes plants that have been bred to have deep roots and a tolerance to a lack of water. Dry Farming depends solely on natural rainfall and timing in planting and crop cycles. In a world where water resources are increasingly scarce, dry farming may become one of the secrets to sustainable agriculture.
