Millets are collectively called ‘dry crops’.
These are such crops that do not require irrigation water.
- Dry crops are generally those crops that require very little water and that water is supplied by natural rainfall.
- Examples are olives, vine and some cereals like wheat, barley and oats.
Wet crops are those crops that require irrigation water.
- The yield of the wet crop is more than the dry crop.
- Wet crops include paddy, the dry ones vary from wheat, pulses, maize, millets, to sorghum, soya-beans, tubers, and vegetables.
