The terminal leaf is known as the flag leaf.

Collect Seeds

The wheat crop is harvested after the straw becomes dry and brittle, and wheat grains harden. The harvesting season time varies from zone to zone. Compared to Irrigated crops, Rainfed crops reach the harvesting stage much earlier. Can expect lower yields of rain-fed crops. Wheat Grains are thoroughly dried before storage to remove all moisture content. To keep the pests away, godowns, storage pits, and bins should be fumigated and moisture free.
