Do you know about various crops? How much do you know about fall harvest? Would you like to play this fall harvest quiz that we have made for you to test your knowledge? Since most crops are usually planted in the spring season, and they are allowed to grow during the summer months, fall (autumn) is the time when crops are eventually ready to be harvested. Here are some questions about harvesting in the fall. Let's see whether you know well or not.

    Explanation
    Carrots require a lot of water to grow until they reach maturity. Adequate watering is essential for their development and to ensure proper root growth.

    Correct Answer
    D. All of these
    Explanation
    All of these grow in the fall season. Beetroot, broad beans, and broccoli are all cool-season crops that thrive in cooler temperatures and can be planted in the fall. These vegetables are typically harvested in late fall or early winter, making them perfect choices for fall gardening.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Seeds sown in spring and summer are harvested during autumn.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Seeds sown in spring and summer take time to grow and mature, usually reaching their full growth by autumn. Therefore, it is logical to assume that they would be harvested during autumn.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Wheat is usually sown in autumn.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Wheat is not usually sown in autumn. Instead, it is typically sown in the spring. Autumn is the time when crops like corn, soybeans, and winter wheat are sown. Winter wheat is sown in autumn and harvested in the following summer. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Which of these is not an ideal crop for the season of fall?

    • A.

      Cotton

    • B.

      Spinach

    • C.

      Tomato

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    A. Cotton
    Explanation
    Cotton is not an ideal crop for the season of fall because it requires warm temperatures to grow properly. Fall is characterized by cooler temperatures, which are not suitable for cotton cultivation. On the other hand, spinach and tomatoes are commonly grown during the fall season as they are cool-weather crops. Therefore, cotton is the incorrect answer as it does not align with the ideal crop selection for the fall season.

    Rate this question:

      Cauliflower

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    C. Both A & B
    Explanation
    Both cauliflower and lettuce are usually grown in the fall season. In many regions, fall is the ideal time to plant these vegetables as the cooler temperatures and shorter days create optimal growing conditions. Cauliflower and lettuce thrive in cooler weather and can tolerate light frosts, making them well-suited for fall cultivation. Planting them in the fall allows them to mature before the winter frost sets in, ensuring a bountiful harvest. Therefore, the correct answer is Both A & B.

    Rate this question:

      All of these plants can be grown in the fall.

    Correct Answer
    D. All of these plants can be grown in the fall.
    Explanation
    All of these plants can be grown in the fall because they are cool-season crops. Peas, beans, and onions thrive in cooler temperatures and can tolerate frost, making them suitable for fall planting. These plants have shorter growing seasons and can be harvested before the winter frost arrives. Therefore, there is no plant in the given options that should not be grown in the fall.

    Rate this question:

    Mustard and sesame are usually sown in autumn.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Mustard and sesame are typically sown in autumn because these crops prefer cooler temperatures and shorter daylight hours. Sowing them in autumn allows them to establish root systems before the winter frost sets in. Additionally, autumn sowing ensures that the crops mature during the spring season when temperatures are moderate, resulting in better yield and quality. Therefore, the statement "Mustard and sesame are usually sown in autumn" is true.
