Updated on: November 9th, 2023

Zaid Crops primarily grow during the summer from March to June during the brief period of time between Kharif and Rabi crops. The Zaid crop season, when these crops are primarily grown, occurs in the summer. For their main development stage and greater day length for flowering, they need warm, dry conditions.
