Rabi Crop is the Gram. The crops grown from the month of October to March, which is in the winter season, are called Rabi crops. Wheat, Gram, Mustard, Pea, and Linseed are examples of such crops. The crops in India are divided into two types based on seasons. They are Kharif crops and Rabi crops.

What are Rabi Crops?

In India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh, rabi crops are also known as winter crops. They are agricultural products that are planted in the winter season and harvested in the spring. The Kharif crop, which is grown after the Rabi and Zaid crops are harvested one after the other, complements the rabi crop.

The best time to sow rabi crops is in the middle of November, ideally after the monsoon season has ended. The harvesting season runs from April to May. Either irrigation is used, or rainwater that has seeped into the ground is used to grow the crops. The rabi crops are ruined by good winter rains, but the Kharif crops benefit from it.

In India, wheat is the most important rabi crop, followed by barley, mustard, sesame, and peas. Peas are harvested early because they are ready early: From January to March, with a peak in February, Indian markets are overrun with green peas.
