      likelihood of crop failure. One of the difficulties with crop production in dryland regions is the extreme variation in precipitation and, therefore, yields between years. Annual precipitation in dryland regions commonly ranges from less than half of average in a dry year to more than twice average in a Makuvaro V. et al.

      Rubber is a tropical tree crop which is mainly grown for the industrial production of latex. Like oil palm it requires a high and year-round rainfall with little or no dry season and stable high temperatures; soils should not be particularly rich, but must be deep and well drained. Both crops are often grown in the same ecological areas, and in In this book leading scientists in the field describe the basic principles of dryland agriculture, and synthesize recent experiences and innovations in dryland agriculture research and development. It is a ready reference on the subject and reinforces the understanding for its utilization to develop environmentally sustainable and profitable

Operatively, dryland farming is practiced where annual potential water evaporation exceeds annual precipitation. The example for the Central Great Plains of the United States in Fig.
