Learn about research into dry farming techniques for vegetable crops in the maritime Pacific Northwest. This project is supported by the USDA Northwest Climate Hub which provides science-based information to assist with making climate-informed decisions. Dry farming is a technique that utilizes the natural moisture retention of soil to grow crops without irrigation, which may be a useful strategy for farmers experiencing drought or altered precipitation patterns. This research was led by the Oregon State University Extension Service Small Farms program.
