Farming plays and will continue to play a pre-dominant role in food production and the sustainability of the world's population. Objective of this mini review was to describe the dry land farming and its importance and also to outline the future growth prospects of this type of agriculture. Dryland management practices over time have undergone continuous evolution and in this mini-review it is synthetically explained. They are essential and over time they have become more active but alone are not sufficient to promote increased crop production in arid environments. The conventional approach which involves in establishing drought tolerant cultivars through breeding has not yet been able to solve the problem. The world of scientific research to increase production in drought environments in recent years is moving in two up-and-coming areas: (1) The use of Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobacteria (PGPR) and (2) The use of water-saving superabsorbent polymer (SAP), both of these opportunities in these last year seem to give great chances for success.
