Suitable time to harvesting of gram

  • When most of the pod is yellow, then gram must be harvested.
  • When the plant dries, and the leaves turn reddish-brown, and the leaves begin to fall, the crop is ready for harvesting.
  • Due to delay in the crop drying and harvesting for a long time, the pods start falling, which reduces yield, so harvesting should be done if the gram has moisture up to about 15 percent.
