However, mulch from Leucaena pruning did not increase production of crops in alley cropping in the semi-arid tropics of India, where the primary benefit of alley cropping was fodder production.

Dry-land farming in India is thus defined broadly to cover rainfed agricultural operation dominated by low water requiring crops in those arid and semi-arid tropical regions of the country. In order to start dry-land farming, requires alternate farm seasons of cropping and fallows which again need careful ploughing and harrowing during both the cropping season and fallow ted Reading Time: 4 mins.

The improvement of production of oilseeds in these regions will save valuable foreign exchange reserves. By enhancing the productivity of crops like jowar, bajra and ragi which are mainly grown in dryland farming would increase the nutrient consumption levels of our nation.

SAT regions with an average rainfall between and mm have Vertisols as an important soil order [15]. There are million km 2 of these soils in the semi-arid regions of Africa, India.

Nice work. You just studied terms. Now up. 1) Karnataka. 2) Maharashtra. 3) West Bengal. 4) Tamil Nadu. View Answer. ANS: 4. Note: Wheat is not cultivated in Tamil Nadu, because atmospheric temperature in Tamil Nadu does not fall below 15 0 C. The optimum temperature for the growth of the wheat plant is 10 0 C 0 C.

The overall growth of total factor productivity of 1 annually in agroclimatic zones that depend largely on rainfed agriculture (Evenson, Pray and Rosegrant, ). Although this growth rate lags behind the rate observed in the Green Revolution areas of northwest India, the difference is surprisingly small.

These studies found significant improvements in growth and yield of major crops (rice, maize, and wheat) as a result of direct de-salinization by cyanobacteria. Improved soil structure (soil channels) promote salt movement to deeper layers of soils and reduce harm to crops.

High temperatures happened in flat regions in Central Dry Zonesarid-semi-arid belts. Intensive rains occur in Tanintharyi, Yangon, Rakhine, Ayarwady and Mon.

  This type of farming is practised in arid and semi-arid regions of Sahara, Central Asia and some parts of India. In shifting cultivation, a small area of forest is cleared by cutting and burning the trees. The cleared land is used for growing crops for a few years until the soil becomes too infertile, and the area is abandoned.
