Describe the process of wheat cultivation in Punjab.

Answer:

Wheat cultivation in Punjab is carried out using the following method:

  1. In Punjab, wheat is sown during the late autumn months of October and November.
  2. It is sowed mainly by the drilling method. In this method, seeds are sown 25 cm apart in rows and are planted about 4 cm deep into the soil.
  3. As the wheat is sown after the rainy season, the soil remains moist and irrigation is not required during the initial period. Fertilisers are added to further enrich the soil.
  4. The light showers during the winter months help in the growth of the crop. The crop is harvested in the months of April. The farmers who have large fields use harvesters, threshers etc. After harvesting, the crop is sold by the farmers or stored for the purpose of selling.
