Land preparation for cultivating wheat in rainfed areas

Wheat crop requires a well pulverized but compact seed-bed for good and uniform seed germination. In rainfed areas, the field preparation should be done with care as conservation of moisture is dependent on it. Fields are usually prepared by giving one deep ploughing right after first monsoon rainfall followed by two to three ploughing with local plough and then planking. In these areas, ploughing should be done in the evening and furrows should be kept open whole night to absorb dew moisture. Planking should be done early in the morning. Drill method should be used for sowing.
