Adding fertilizers: chemical fertilizer, organic manure and compost manure 4. Irrigation: supply water 5. Spraying pesticides to protect crops 6. Harvesting: using sickle, mechanical harvesters, combines 7. Storage drying the crops in case of cereals & pulses & storing in air tight containers like gunny bags in moisture proof, rat proof godowns.
