Rabi crop

Rabi crop

The Rabi crop (Hindi: रबी, Urdu: ربي) is the spring harvest (also known as the "winter crop") in India and Pakistan. The term Rabi means "spring" in Arabic, which is reflected in two months of the Islamic lunar calendar, Rabi' al-awwal and Rabi' al-thani (which usually span mid/late April to mid/late June), when the crop is harvested.
