  Soil Requirement

Wheat is grown in a variety of soil in India. Well drained , loam, light loam and clay loam are considered to be good for wheat cultivation but it can also grown successfully on heavy soils with open structure. Wheat does well in a soil having loam texture, good structure with good water holding capacity. Wheat can be raised successfully in sandy loam and black soil also. In case, if the soil is very acidic, pH of the soil can be raised by the application of dolomite or limestone based on soil test report. However application of 1 tonne of dolomite per hectare is beneficial. If furrow application is followed 200 -500 kg of dolomite at least 15 days before sowing is economical.
