Few days back I had posted few photographs from my recent visit to Himachal... Here are few more photographs of same trip...
The golden colors of the wheat fields across the landscapes of Mandi, Himachal Pradesh
Wheat is one of the most important food crops in the world. It belongs to the grass family and looks a lot like yard-grass when it is small. Wheat is grown all over the world.
Canada, China, France, India, Russia, and the United States grow the most wheat.
Harvesting process a lot difficult and time consuming. After completion, the wheat must be separated from any unwanted chaff before it is ready for further applications.
Wheat grows best in a dry and mild climate. Climates that are too hot or too cold will ruin the crop. Farmers add fertilizer if soil does not have what the wheat needs to grow well. If a farmer grows wheat in the same field every year, crops take away nutrients from the soil. The farmers put this back when they add fertilizer. They test the dirt often to be sure the crop grows well.
Some seeds are saved so that the farmer can plant them the next year. This is a way that farmers save some money.Some seeds are saved so that the farmer can plant them the next year. This is a way that farmers save some money.
