Dryland farming is practiced in the semiarid American Great Plains and Canadian Prairies whereby the soil is cultivated in ways that conserve precious moisture. For generations European Americans coming to the Great Plains of North America labored to squeeze the most out of a land often short on rainfall.
Mennonites were some of the first to move West and to begin farming on the Great Plains. They were Russian Protestant groups. Exodusters moved West to escape sharecropping and own land for themselves. They were paid little for their hard work farming and they fell into debt. John Solomon Lewis stated that "I one day said to the man I rented [land] from: 'It's no use, I works hard and raises. In agriculture and gardening, mulch is a protective cover placed over the soil to retain moisture, reduce erosion, provide nutrients, and suppress weed growth and seed germination. Mulching in gardens and landscaping mimics the leaf cover that is found on forest floors. Materials used as mulches vary and depend on a number of factors. Use takes into consideration availability, cost, appearance.

The practice of farming with residue on the surface is called stubble-mulch farm ing. Stubble-mulch farming is a year-round system of managing plant residues so that the soil surface is pro tected at all times against erosion hazards (6). It is very.

Stubble-mulch farming by an improved subtillage tool on plots of a silty clay loam of the Pullman series produced, under the prevailing erratic rainfall conditions, higher yields of wheat than tillage by the one-way or the mouldboard plough. Increased grain yields appeared to be due to a depressed nitrification as expressed in the decreased straw-grain ratio and protein content of the wheat Author: W.

In more humid areas of the Great Plains and in the Pacific Northwest, there may be substantial decreases in grain yield with stubble mulching. These yield reductions with stubble mulch tillage are apparently due to decreased nutrient availability, particularly nitrogen, inadequate weed control, or a combination of both by: The southern region of the Western High Plains ecology region contains the geological formation known as Llano Estacado which can be seen from a short distance or on satellite maps.
From east to west, the High Plains rise in elevation from around 1, feet ( m) to over 7, feet (2, m).Area:sq mi (, km²) . Nitrogen fertilization was more important than tillage system in determining sorghum and wheat yields in wet years.
In dry years, N‐fertilized stubble mulch treatments had the lowest yields. Since conversion to either stubble mulch or no‐till inorganic C levels under both systems have continually increased.

Grain production was more than twice as great with sorghum than with wheat, due to greater biomass production and a 33% greater harvest index. Although wheat is the major dryland crop in the Southern High Plains, sorghum seems much better adapted to the region's predominant pattern of late spring‐summer rainfall.
These words by the former chief of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA’s) Soil Conservation Service corroborate the attitude of many persons regarding the potentials of this practice for conserving soil and water resources, not only in the United States, but also in.
Two in-situ water harvesting techniques were compared with traditional and conservation agricultural practices for two consecutive rainy seasons, /05 and /06, to study the effect of soil surface formation techniques on yield and yield components of maize in the North of Gadaref State.
to erosion. Stubble mulch farming is extensively practiced in the Great Plains because it manages plant residues so the soil surface is protected and is thus one of the most effective conservation practices available today to control ero sion and conserve moisture in the semi-arid climate.

A clear example of such poor soil management was the Dust Bowl Era. While it was the inevitable drought from to that ultimately led to the Dust Bowl, the soil quality was worsened due to. Stubble-mulch farming is a year-round way of managing plant residues on cropland.
Harvest- ing, cultivating, seedbed preparation, and plant- ing are all done so as to leave residues of the pre- vious crop on top of or near the surface of the soil until after the next crop is seeded. Such residues reduce the impact of raindrops on the soil surface.
Stubble Mulch The blade plow or sweep plow, a common tillage implement in the High Plains, cuts weeds at the roots and leaves most of the residue anchored at.

Water is the main factor limiting dryland farming in the Southern High Plains of the United States due to low and variable precipitation (Baumhardt et al.,Jones and Popham,Lascano, ).Typically, 70% of the annual precipitation in this region occurs during the summer growing period of May–October (Unger and Pringle,Baumhardt et al., ) but it is.

- Farming families had to move from areas, like New England, where farmland had become scarce and too expensive. - Descendants of earlier pioneers were some other settlers in the Midwest. - The Exodusters were a South African American group that also moved to the Great Plains.
