Farmers are directed to apply second irrigation to wheat crop after 80 days of sowing.

Wheat crop grown after rice, cotton, maize or sugarcane must be irrigated 80 days after sowing. While for the late crop of wheat, first irrigation should be given 20 days after sowing and second irrigation 70 days after sowing, during grain formation. Farmers should pay attention towards irrigation schedule of wheat crop. If the first irrigation has delayed due to any reason, then it must be completed as soon as possible, while in sandy soil urea fertilizer should be applied in 4 equal installments.

After first irrigation, farmers should use bar harrow in order to remove weeds and it should be repeated twice in the field when there is enough moisture in the soil. For the removal of weeds during initial growth period of the crop, weedicide should be immediately sprayed after first irrigation and spray must be used in accordance with the nature of weed.

When both broad leaf and narrow leaf type of weeds are present in the field then mixtures of weedicides available in market must be used. 100 to 120 liter water per acre must be used for spray application. Sprayed must be done after rising of sun, when there is no any fog or mist in the atmosphere.
