Also it needs a right and appropriate amount of rainfall, as it is a key factor for a high yield. This crop has earned so much popularity because it is one of the best kinds among a few crops that can be produced in the desert areas. It also has soil fixing characteristics that makes it fit well into a crop rotation cycle. It is a short duration crop and is harvested within 3 to 4 months of its plantation.
