The South Texas ranches for sale have been owned by a wide variety of people and have been put to a multitude of different uses. Most South Texas farmers fall into one of five categories. There are hay farmers, mineral farmer, and cattle operators, but Texas Republic properties also include both irrigated and dryland farms, which are not nearly as intuitively explained. Dry land farming is unique in that it is dependent only on natural rainfall. This technique originated in Russia and is now instituted in many parts of the world. Traditionally it is used on farms that grow winter wheat, but skilled dryland farmers can also grow corn and even watermelons. The major drawback is that dryland farms are particularly susceptible to dust storms and drought. Dryland farmers must be prepared to lose entire crops if the weather is uncooperative. The obvious benefit is that dryland farming saves time, money, and energy because farmers do not need to spend additional time watering their crops.
Ranches For Sale in South Texas
Many of the South Texas ranches for sale are set up for irrigated farming. Irrigation, or the artificial application of water to land or soil, has been in use since Ancient Egyptian times. Farmers in Ancient Egypt used dykes to control the flooding of the Nile River and to channel water to their crops. Similar techniques are still in use today.
