Why is Punjab ideally suited for the cultivation of wheat?

Answer:

Punjab is ideally suited for the cultivation of wheat due to the following reasons:

  1. The climate of Punjab is suited for the cultivation of wheat. During winters, the temperature of the region remains between 10°C to 25°C. Punjab also receives light showers during the winter months from the western disturbances. Such a climate is suited for wheat cultivation.
  2. Punjab is drained by the River Indus and its tributaries-Jhelum, Sutlej, Ravi, Beas and Chenab. These rivers have deposited alluvial soil on the plains of Punjab which is ideal for wheat cultivation.
  3. Punjab has good irrigation facilities. It has wells, tube wells, canals etc. which are used for irrigating crops.
