Solution

(i) SILOS

  • The silos are the huge containers that are used to store grains.
  • These helps in protecting the grains from natural or man-made damages.​

(ii) THRESHING

  • Threshing is used for separating seeds from the harvested stalks.
  • The method of separation is based on the fact that stalks of the crop plant and the chaff are soft materials whereas grains themselves are hard.


(iii) IRRIGATION

  • Irrigation is the process by which water is supplied to crops at different intervals.
  • The time and frequency of irrigation varies according to different seasons, crop, and soil types.

(iv) RIVER

  • A river is a ribbon-like body of water that flows downhill from the force of gravity.
  • A river can be wide and deep, or shallow enough for a person to wade across.​


I S H R N G A T V E R = HARVESTING

  • Harvesting is the process of gathering a ripe crop from the fields.
  • It starts with the cutting of the crop and ends with the cleaning of crop and preparing it to be dried.​
  • The activity carried out in fields after maturation of crop is harvesting.
