    Friends,I have 8 acres of dry land in
    My village near bellari Karnataka. Because of heavy drought this year our bore well drained away. I am seeking some permeant solution for this type of dry regions. But one thing is land is well suited for all kind of cultivation.

    Thanking you in advance.
  2. Try cultivation of Moringa in Monsoon.
    Moringa is drought resistant tree and its farming will be profitable for you.
    If water is available, Little water in summer will be helpful for better growth in summer.

    As bellari is very sunny area. Go for solar plant.

    I agree with Solar plant..... but not for Eucalyptus, Subabul, Casurina, bamboo etc,
    As per the research on these trees the rainfall is dropped so much especially in Prakasam district where all the paper companies came and gave the farmers to try these trees for good revenue but the after 15 years now they are facing the real environmental issues with these trees.

    nowadays, organic farming is a major trend, probably you can use your land to make vermi compost in your land and sell to the people who are looking for creating awareness.
    there are 2 major advantages
    1. your soil will be fertile and at the same time you will be earning some revenues
    2. you will get more knowledge when meeting lot of people and hearing the stories from them..
    based on that you can choose what you wanted to do

    you can try Apple Bare which need less water and fruit demand is going up. as suggested in earlier post Moringa also suitable for dry lands, now a days Moringa leaf largely used in medicinal preparations. some types of medicinal plants suits for dry land and you can get buy back consultancies help. If you have time and sincerely planing to do some thing with your land you can get marvelous support in this group, there are so many progressive farmers doing wonders by practicing natural/Organic farming techniques in dry/less rain fall lands.

    Try the dragon fruit cultivation, it is a desert plant (cactus). it should survive with less water.
    plant some and check how it works.

    hope it helps.
