Arid and Semi-Arid Agriculture Prone to drought and with scarce water resources, agriculture in arid and semi-arid regions has unique characteristics and demands. Specific techniques, management practices, and techniques can be used to adapt to the presence or lack of water and moisture for growing crops.

Book Description. Management of Problem Soils in Arid Ecosystems examines the challenges of managing soils in arid and semiarid regions. These soils contain low organic matter, are not leached, and accumulate lime, gypsum, and/or soluble salts, .   The Zambezi Valley is a semi-arid to arid region located in agro-ecological region IV. The region is characterised by low annual precipitation of mm – mm, seasonal droughts and severe intra-season dry spells. The rain season is unimodal, extending from mid-November up to the end of March (hot, wet season).

Salinity is a global problem. The continuous loss of arable land due to irrigation in arid and semi-arid regions of the world, over-exploitation and mismanagement contribute to global change in a way which currently appears to draw much less concern in the media and the general public than the accumulation of green house gases –carbon dioxide, methane and others – in our .

PRINCIPAL PROBLEMS OF AGRICULTURE IN ARID REGIONS. Water. Water is absolutely necessary for all plant and animal life. Plants have evolved that are capable of living and reproducing in semi-arid, arid, and even desert regions.

However, as aridity increases, fewer and fewer species are adapted, and the potential biomass is reduced.

september, Farming in arid and semiarid lands: May (Quick bibliography series ; ). Abstract Salinity stress is one of the most vital abiotic stresses which results in significant damages of agricultural production, particularly in arid and semi-arid areas of the world.

Salinity. Agriculture is the world’s largest freshwater user, impacting the water cycle especially in arid and semi-arid regions, through the diversion of surface water and the extraction of groundwater.

This is exacerbated by increases in the standard of living, and crop yield reductions resulting from land overuse and degradation (Nellemann, ). Hydrology is a key influence on water security, environmental sustainability, agricultural production, energy, and transport, especially in unique environments such as arid regions and the tropics, where degradation issues on water and land can threaten the livelihoods of poor communities.
