Kharif crops, monsoon crops or autumn crops are
domesticated plants that are cultivated and harvested in India,
Pakistan and Bangladesh during the Indian subcontinent’s
monsoon season, which lasts from June to November depending
on the area. Monsoon rains may begin as early as May in
some parts of the Indian subcontinent, and crops are generally
harvested from the third Week of September to October. Rice,
maize, and cotton are some of the major Kharif crops in India.
The opposite of the Kharif crop is the Rabi crop, which is
grown in the winter.
