  • There are more than 40,000 different varieties of rice 
  • Rice is cultivated in over 100 countries and on every continent except Antarctica
  • Rice varieties have probably changed more in the past 20 years than in the previous 20 centuries
  • Rice can grow on soil types that are not well suited for other crops
  • Rice can grow in areas that are waterlogged or inundated
  • Rice can be stored for years.The commercial demand of rice is relatively stable (but prices are low)
  • Rice is relatively robust towards pests, and lowland rice is very robust towards weeds.
  • One crop of rice can be raised in 3-4 months, well within the period of the monsoon rainfall
  • The System of Rice Intensification, known as SRI, is a set of farming practices developed to increase the productivity of land and water, as well as other resources
  • SRI is based on the principle of developing healthy, large and deep root systems that can better resist drought, water logging and wind damage. It consists of six key elements to better manage inputs, utilize new ways to transplant
    seedlings, and to manage water and fertilizer application.
  • Rice production system depends heavily on the use of fertilizers, pesticides, and other inputs. The increased use of agrochemicals
    and chemical fertilizers has raised concern about environmental pollution.
  • In world paddy production, Asia’s share is more than 90 percent. Paddy is a primary food grain crop of India and occupies about 37 percent of the area under food grains and contributed more than 40 percent of food grains production in the country
  • China the largest producer of paddy accounting 31.76 percent of total world production followed by India (22.40 percent).
