The ideal temperature required throughout the life period of the crop ranges from 20°C to 40°C. A small workforce is applied to a large piece of land. India could achieve a record rice production of 100 million tonnes in 2010-11 crop year on the back of better monsoon this year. However, deep, well-drained and friable soils having good organic matter are ideal for its cultivation. During dry and humid conditions, regular irrigation should be given.

Once seeds are germinated and seedlings are uprooted Usually this will happen after 5 weeks , these seedlings can be transplanted in the main field. Favorable Geographical Condition for Wheat Cultivation: In India, wheat is a winter crop. The initial increase in production was centred on the irrigated areas of the states of , and western. Also, frost conditions during vegetative growth stages lead to low production. Following , significant growth was registered in the agricultural sector, which was by now benefiting from the earlier reforms and the newer innovations of Agro-processing and.
Land Preparation For commercial apple farming, cultivate apples on well-drained soil with decent layout proposed. The National Archives, Government of the United Kingdom.
