FAISALABAD:

Farmers have been advised to water their wheat crops on time for healthy grains.

A spokesman for the agriculture department said that in most of the wheat growing areas, the growers do not care for timely watering of the crops, which affects the quality as well as quantity of grains. He advised, “The growers should water their wheat crops after 20-25 days of cultivation, whereas second watering should be carried out after 70-80 days.

The third watering should be done 110-115 days after sowing so that grains of the wheat can become fully developed and produce maximum yield,” he added.
