Arid lands, defined as arid, semi-arid and dry sub-humid areas, are among the world’s most fragile ecosystems, made more so by periodic droughts and increasing overexploitation of meagre resources. Arid lands cover around 30 % of the world’s land area and are inhabited by about one billion people, aFile Size: KB.

Dryland farming and dry farming encompass specific agricultural techniques for the non-irrigated cultivation of d 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. The main enterprise is extensive grazing of predominantly native pastures. On the eastern and southern margins of the rangelands, extensive grazing occurs in conjunction with broadacre cropping and areas of intensive irrigated agriculture.

Collectively, the semi-arid and arid zones occupy about 60. If land has an Arid climate it is usually a desert. Most deserts are found along the 30 degree latitude line (north and south of the equator).

This is due to the pattern of cold water currents, which force dry air over the land. Other Arid climates exist in the center of continents or in the rain shadow of large mountain ranges. A rain shadow.
