By Sakshi Yadav|Updated : August 2nd, 2022

Kharif crops are grown from May to June and are harvested at the beginning of October. Crops that are planted during the southwest monsoon season are called Kharif crops. Pulses, maize, urad dal, moong dal, millets, and rice are the major Kharif crops. These crops require high temperature, humidity, and good rainfall because the output of these crops depends upon the time and amount of rainwater. 

There are three types of crops grown in India i.e Kharif, Rabi, and Zaid. The words Kharif and Rabi originated from the Arabic language. They were used in India with the rise of the Mughal Empire in the Indian subcontinent and have been widely used after. The word Kharif means "autumn" in Arabic and its sowing takes place during the monsoon and harvesting takes place around autumn.
