Q.7 If wheat is sown in the kharif season, what would happen? Discuss.


Answer :

If wheat is sown in the kharif season (from June to October), then the whole crop might get destroyed because of the following factors:-

1. Lack of optimum temperature:
The optimum temperature range for ideal germination of wheat seed is 20-25 degree Celsius. As there is frequent raining during the kharif season , so the wheat seeds might get damaged as the rain just after sowing can hamper germination process.
2. Adaptability:
Wheat grows in areas with low humidity to avoid diseases that it suffers in damp weather.
3. Availability of pests:
Appropriate pesticides and insecticides are used to control pests from affecting wheat.

Therefore, wheat crop should not be sown during kharif season.
