These soils are observed in Dantiwada, Hisser and Jodhpur. Submontane soils: Such soils are distributed in the dry sub-humid environment of Hosiarpur in Punjab and Rakh Dhiansar in Jammu and Kashmir and in the humid tract of Dehradun. The lands are sloping, the soils range from loamy sands to sandy loams, silty loams and clay loams with soil moisture storage capacity improving in that order. Soil crusting occurs in soils of dry and sub-humid regions. Constraints:Basic Problems related with dryland Agriculture are hereunder: 1.
Management practices involve in dryland Agriculture: Reduction of moisture loss due to Evaporation and Transpiration. Following measures are taken to reduce the loss of moisture received by the soil. Advantages of dryland agriculture: 1. Use of Cropping systems:Adaption of dry-land agriculture in different cropping systems, use according to the climate and soil types. The areas with to mm annual rainfall, mono cropping with traditional long duration crops is common.
Generally adaptable crops are cereals, oil-seeds and pulses. When the rainfall is between to mm with a distinct period of moisture surplus, the intercropping system can be adopted.
In areas with more than mm annual rainfall with soil storage capacity of mm or more of available moisture sequential cropping is possible. Use of Mechanical Methods in dry-land agriculture: 1. Contour bunding:The bund section is 1. The vertical distance is about 0. The area occupied is upto 5. Graded bunding: Graded bunds are of 0. The area lost due to the structure would be no more than per cent and there would be no water stagnation and graded bund with grassed waterways and box-type masonry drainage outlets in arable fields.
Tie-ridging:The practice of tie-ridging, where adjacent ridges are joined at regular intervals by barriers or ties of the same height, allows the water to infiltrate and prevent run-off except during intense storms.
This method is adequate in moderate rainfall areas, except on very steep slopes. Bench terracing:On steeply sloping lands, the slopes where such terraces are found useful vary from 6 to 30 per cent. Bench terraces with m length, longitudinal grades in the range of 0. Ploughing:Ploughing across the slope and growing low value crops in catchment areas, the ploughing of deep soils should be done once in three to four years immediately after rabi crops.
The light, shallow and medium soils should be hoed instead of ploughing which help to receive and retain moisture. Reclaiming problem soils in dry-land agriculture: Reclamation of Acidic Alkaline and Saline soils should be done by adding lime, gypsum, sulphur, or pyrites respectively. Growing high value crops in level run-off concentrated strips and incorporating a liberal quantity of organic matter. Maintenance of soil fertility in dry-land agriculture:Dryland areas have low yields and high yield fluctuations.
The maintenance of soil fertility is a problem in such areas as for a considerable period of the year the soil remains un cropped and there is a loss of plant nutrients, loss of the fertile surface due to erosion leads to a decline in soil fertility to build up soil fertility and reduce the fluctuation of crop yield.

Dry farming crops are characterized by very low and highly variable and uncertain yields. Crop failures are quite common. These are mainly due to the following causes. In general, the rainfall is low and highly variable which results in uncertain crop yields. Besides its uncertainty, the distribution of rainfall during the crop period is uneven, receiving high amount of rain, when it is not needed and lack of it when crop needs it.

Dry farming , also called Dryland Farming , the cultivation of crops without irrigation in regions of limited moisture, typically less than 20 inches 50 centimetres of precipitation annually. Dry farming depends upon efficient storage of the limited moisture in the soil and the selection of crops and growing methods that make the best use of this moisture. Tilling the land shortly after harvest and keeping it free from weeds are typical methods, but in certain latitudes stubble is left in the fields after harvest to trap snow. Moisture control during crop growing consists largely of destruction of weeds and prevention of runoff.

Furthermore, available freshwater resources per person have declined by more than 20 percent over the past two decades, underscoring the importance of producing more with less, especially in the agriculture sector, the world's largest user. Improved water management, supported by effective governance and strong institutions - including secure water tenure and rights, underpinned by sound water accounting and auditing - will be essential to ensure global food security and nutrition, and contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals SDGs , according to The State of Food and Agriculture SOFA - a flagship report published today by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. Paths for action range from investing in water-harvesting and conservation in rainfed areas to rehabilitating and modernizing sustainable irrigation systems in irrigated areas. These must be combined with best agronomic practices, such as adopting drought-tolerant crop varieties, and improved water management tools - including effective water pricing and allocation tools, such as water rights and quotas - to ensure equitable and sustainable access. Water accounting and auditing must be, however, the starting point for any effective management strategy.
Dryland farming and dry farming encompass specific agricultural techniques for the non-irrigated cultivation of crops. Dryland farming is associated with drylands , areas characterized by a cool wet season which charges the soil with virtually all the moisture that the crops will receive prior to harvest followed by a warm dry season. They are also associated with arid conditions, areas prone to drought and those having scarce water-resources. Dryland farming has evolved as a set of techniques and management practices used by farmers to continually adapt to the presence or lack of moisture in a given crop cycle. In marginal regions, a farmer should be financially able to survive occasional crop failures, perhaps for several years in succession. Dryland farming involves the constant assessing of the amount of moisture present or lacking for any given crop cycle and planning accordingly.
