Answer: The correct sequence of agricultural practices are
i) Tilling and Ploughing
i) Tilling and ploughing:
One of the most important tasks in agriculture is to turn the soil and loosen it. This allows the roots to penetrate deep into the soil. The loose soil allows the roots to breathe easily even when they go deep into the soil. The process of loosening and turning of the soil is called tilling or ploughing.
After tilling and ploughing healthy seeds are collected and they are sown into considerable depth.
Plants are manured with humus which improves the texture of the soil and replenishes nutrients in the soil.
Irrigation helps to water the plants regularly which will help in keeping the moisture of plants.
Weeds are removed before they get matured as they compete with crops for water, nutrients and sunlight.
Cutting and gathering matured crops is known as harvesting. Harvesting can be done manually as well as by using harvesters.
