Expert Answer:

Wheat is a rabi crop grown in winter season. It does not require too much water for its growth. If wheat is sown in kharif season, the crop may wilt as it cannot tolerate excess water. The field may get waterlogged, seed germination might not occur and it can even damage the crop. The wheat crop requires cooler climate which is not available during kharif season. Also, the crop requires light of medium intensity which is not available during kharif season. As a result, the produce will decrease and the quality of grains will not be satisfactory. Therefore, wheat should not be sown in the kharif season.
