Hint: Kharif crops are those that are sown during the southwest monsoon season. They're also known as Monsoon crops because they need a lot of water to flourish.

Complete answer:
The season in India is well-known for running from June to the end of October. These kharif crops are planted at the onset of the rainy season before the first rains fall, which ensures they are planted at the start of the monsoon season and harvested at the end of the monsoon season. Rice, maize, and pulses like urad, moong dal, and millets are among the most important kharif crops. Sorghum, pearl millet, finger millet, arhar, soyabean, groundnut (oil seeds), cotton, and other grains are examples. Autumn crops are also referred to as Kharif crops.

They are domesticated plants that are cultivated in India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh during the monsoon season on the Indian subcontinent.These crops are completely reliant on irrigation, both in terms of quantities and timing. Too little or too much rain will influence the quality and quantity of crops.

Therefore the correct answer is option ‘A’.

Note: Kharif crops are the polar opposite to rabi crops in terms of harvest timing, since rabi crops are sown during the dry season, that is during the winter. Wheat, barley, oats (cereals), chicken pea, linseed, mustard, and other Rabi crops are examples.Aside from the rabi and kharif crops, there is another form of crop known as Zaid, which includes seasonal fruits, vegetables, and fodder crops, among other things.
