hi hawasagc.....

The crops that are sown in the winter season are called rabi crops. The Rabi crop is the spring harvest (also known as the "winter crop") in India and Pakistan. The term Rabi means "spring" in Arabic, when the crop is harvested.Crops that are grown in the winter season, from November to April are called Rabi Crops.Some of the important rabi crops are wheat,barley,peas,gram and mustard.States of north and north eastern part of Pakistan such as Punjab,sindh and kashmir are important for the production of wheat and other rabi crops.Availability of precipitation during winter months due to the western temperate cyclones helps in the success of these crops.

The chief rabbi crops are wheat, barley, gram, pulses, linseed and mustard. These crops are garneted in spring season.

The crops that are sown in the rainy season are called kharif crops. The Kharif crop  is the autumn harvest (also known as the summer or monsoon crop) in India and Pakistan. The term Kharif means "autumn" in ArabicKharif crops are usually sown with the beginning of the first rains in July, during the south-west monsoon season. The main monsoon season in India runs from June to September and the southwest summer monsoon occur due to a low pressure area that's caused by the extreme heat of the Thar Desert and adjoining areas, during summer.e.g.---millets ,paddy, maize, moong etc etc.....

hope it helps.....cheers...!!!!!
