Dryland farming

I learned a lot from this article about dryland farming. Since it’s from the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) I’m inclined to trust what this article says. But I don’t see a date on the article. It cites 20th century sources of info, so I don’t know how up-to-date it really is. Here’s an article from last year, about Australians offering dryland training to African farmers.

You can follow my ‘dryland’ and ‘desert’ tags for more about growing food in dry places.

About argylesock

I wrote a PhD about veterinary parasitology so that's the starting point for this blog. But I'm now branching out into other areas of biology and into popular science writing. I'll write here about science that happens in landscapes, particularly farmland, and about science involving interspecific interactions. Datasets and statistics get my attention. Exactly where this blog will lead? That's a journey that I'm on and I hope you'll come with me.
