- This involves sowing the seeds either through direct drilling or using specialized seeding equipment.
- June-July: Crop Growth and Development
- As the wheat plants grow, farmers closely monitor their progress, looking out for signs of pests, diseases, or nutrient deficiencies.
- Weed control measures are implemented to prevent competition for resources and optimize wheat growth.
- July-August: Reproductive Stage
- The wheat plants reach their reproductive stage, producing flowers that eventually turn into grain heads.
- Farmers continue monitoring the crop’s health and making any necessary adjustments, such as irrigation or pest control.
