Sowing time of Rabi & Kharif crop

Sowing time of Rabi & Kharif crop

The crops are broadly divided into three categories, namely, kharif, rabi and summer crops. The kharif season starts from June and ends in September. The rabi season is during October to February and the summer season is between March and May.

Kharif crops are grown in both irrigated and rain-fed conditions. The season begins from the onset of the south-west monsoon and ends in September. The rabi season starts with the onset of north-east monsoon in October. Many crops are cultivated in both kharif and rabi seasons. The agriculture crops produced in India are seasonal in nature and highly dependant on these two monsoons.
