While establishing and managing pastures without the use of supplemental irrigation presents some unique challenges, it’s not impossible. In fact, dryland farming has been the norm in several parched areas of the country for over a century. Our dryland pasture blends contain some of the most water-efficient forages available and are capable of producing quality forage in areas that receive little natural rainfall.
Our experts have designed these dryland blends based on climate conditions and average annual precipitation levels of each region. They can be established and maintained without irrigation, although any additional water applied will help increase forage yields and regrown potential. See this article for more information about dryland pasture planting.
