Dry Farming

Dry farming is a cultivation technique that depends on natural rainfall and the ability of soil to retain moisture to sustain crop growth while avoiding the use of irrigated water. Some benefits of dry farming are:

Water Conservation: This method significantly reduces water usage, offering a gardening alternative in areas with scarce water supplies. This method also brings peace of mind during times when water usage may be restricted. Great for those who live off grid and do not have running water.

Cost Efficiency: It eliminates the need for costly irrigation infrastructure and its upkeep, providing an economical solution for farmers.

Increased Resilience: Crops grown under dry farming conditions tend to develop deeper root systems to access subterranean water, enhancing their drought resistance.

Enhanced Soil Health: The practice encourages the growth of deep roots, which helps in maintaining soil structure and enhancing fertility.

Food Security: The produce from dry farmed crop will taste better and some will store longer into the winter.
