RAINFED FARMING SYSTEMS IN THE MEDITERRANEAN REGION DAVID GIBBON School of Development Studies, University of East Anglia, Norwich, England Mediterranean-type environments* are found in the Mediterranean Basin, Cen-tral and Southern California, Central Chile, South-West Çape Province, South.

Using relevant agricultural principles and the understanding of a wide range of rainfed farming systems, this book defines principles and practices important to the effective operation and management of such systems. Principles and Methods for Sustainable Disease Management in Rainfed Agricultural Systems.

In dry, rainfed lands of the world crop yield potential is usually limited by both low rainfall and degraded soil, as well as social and economic constraints.

Though the Mediterranean region is Cited by: 2. Using relevant agricultural principles and the understanding of a wide range of rainfed farming systems, this book defines principles and practices important to the effective operation and management of such systems.

This is done in the context of many challenges for agriculture. The lucerne-based pastures are the foundation of a phase-farming system. A period of lucerne varying in length from 2 to 10 years is followed by a cropping phase of 3–10 years. The lucerne pastures are rotationally grazed for 1–2 weeks with 5–6 weeks between by: Abstract: A wide range of legumes is traditionally used in Mediterranean regions, owing to the extreme variability of environmental conditions and farming systems.

Annual forage legumes are cultivated as short-term forage crops, usually in mixture with cereals or grasses. Technologies for rainfed agriculture in Mediterranean climates: a review of World Bank experiences (English) Abstract.

Overview Rainfed Farming System. Rainfed agriculture occupies about 51 percent of country’s net sown area and accounts for nearly 40 percent of the total food production. Rainfed agriculture is complex, highly diverse and risk prone.

The chapter highlights some of the major changes that have impinged upon the region’s rainfed farming systems in the past few decades, with implications for the future of rainfed cropping.

The Role of Legumes in the Farming Systems of the Mediterranean Areas: Proceedings of a Workshop on the Role of Legumes in the Farming Systems of the Mediterranean Areas UNDP/ICARDA, Tunis, June 20–24, A.E. Osman, M.M. Legumes are an important source of protein for humans and animals.

The Mediterranean basin has a long history of agricultural production contributing to many other ecosystem services at the same time. Mediterranean farming systems are characterized by small scales, low intensity, and high natural value systems, e.g., silvopastoralism, mixed farming.

Past and recent development of perennial grasses in the rainfed Euro‐Mediterranean region is reviewed concerning climatic constraints and main types of farming systems. The few Mediterranean cultivars that are registered and available are used for livestock production and cover crops only in subtemperate areas.

Growing populations and intensification of land-use in West Asia and North Africa (WANA) are prompting a need for viable alternatives to fallow and cereal mono-cropping systems common in dry areas of this region. The sustainability and economic viability of such rotations can only be assessed accurately by using long-term trials.

A two-course rotation experiment was established in in Cited by: This book analyses common rain-fed farming systems and defines the principles and practices important to their effective functioning and management.

Rainfed agriculture is a type of farming that relies on rainfall for water. It provides much of the food consumed by poor communities in developing example, rainfed agriculture accounts for more than 95% of farmed land in sub-Saharan Africa, 90% in Latin America, 75% in the Near East and North Africa, 65% in East Asia, and 60% in South Asia.

The Mediterranean region has always shown a marked inter-annual variability in seasonal weather, creating uncertainty in decisional processes of cultivation and livestock breeding that should not be neglected when modeling farmers' adaptive responses.

Better Farming 1. The Way to Work, the Living Plant This handbook () is designed for intermediate level agricultural education and training. Mediterranean environments are characterised by hot, dry summers and cool, wet winters.

The native vegetation in Mediterranean-climatic regions is predominantly perennial shrubs and trees intermixed with annual forbs.

In south-western Australia, the spread of agriculture has seen the well adapted perennial vegetation replaced by rainfed annual crops and pastures. This has increased Cited by: In biogeography, the Mediterranean Basin / ˌ m ɛ d ɪ t ə ˈ r eɪ n i ə n / (also known as the Mediterranean region or sometimes Mediterranea) is the region of lands around the Mediterranean Sea that have a Mediterranean climate, with mild, rainy winters and hot, dry summers, which supports characteristic Mediterranean forests, woodlands, and scrub vegetation.

Rainfed farming systems are important throughout the USA, but are most dominant in the eastern half where precipitation is greater than mm/year. Various regions of the country have unique climatic, physical, and socio-economic conditions that have contributed to the development of particular farming systems.

Four major. In regions with Mediterranean climate, water is the major environmental resource that limits growth and production of plants, experiencing a long period of water scarcity during summer.

Despite the fact that most plants developed morphological, anatomical, physiological, and biochemical mechanisms that allow to cope with such environments, these harsh summer conditions reduce growth, yield Cited by: 3.

Total area of region within the farming system or region excluding areas under inland water bodies. Total Economically Active Population This refers to the number of all employed and unemployed persons (including those seeking work for the first time).

Dry farming is also called dryland farming. It is a type of farming where the crops are cultivated without irrigation in arid areas. Farmers typically grow winter wheat, which is a drought. Legumes are an important source of protein for humans and animals.

They provide nutritionally rich crop residues for animal feed, and playa key role in maintaining the productivity of soils particularly through biological nitro­ gen fixation.

They are, therefore, of immense value in rainfed farming. nitrogen in rainfed and irrigated cropping systems in the mediterranean region The Middle East region, embracing West Asia and North Africa (WANA), is characterized by a Mediterranean climate which dictates the agriculture of the region.
