Black gram grows from September to November and is harvested from February to April. However green gram is typically a Kharif crop, but in South India, it's cultivated as a rabi crop.
Apply the first round of irrigation 45-60 days after planting, just before flowering, and provide the second irrigation when grains begin to form in the pods.
