Expert Answer:

the use of irrigation after maturation of crops


Irrigation is needed right from the seed or seedling stage upto the harvest stage, not afetr maturation of crops.

(If wheat is grown under irrigated conditions, 4-6 irrigations are needed. The first irrigation should be given at the crown root initiation stage, 20-25 days after sowing. Other rounds of irrigation should be done at the time of late tillering, late jointing, flowering, milk and dough stages. The wheat crop should be irrigated a few more times if the soil is very light or sandy. )
