In the Indian sub-continent, the crops grown on irrigated lands which do not have to wait for monsoons, in the short duration between Rabi and Kharif crop season, mainly from March to June, are called Zaid crops. These crops are grown mainly in the summer season during a period called the "Zayad crop season." They require warm dry weather for major growth period and longer day length for flowering. The main produce are seasonal fruits and vegetables.
