Dry farming has been defined as production of useful crops, without irrigation, on lands that receive an annual precipitation of 20 inches or less. In some regions the term dry farming is applied to farming without irrigation under annual precipitation of 30 inches or less. Although there is no sharp demarkation between dry farming and humid farming, the term dry farming always means farming under difficulties due to limited annual rainfall.
