Care

Care

Plains or gentle slopes are most suitable for the production of rice. The traditional method for cultivating rice is flooding the fields while, or after, planting the young seedlings. This simple method requires sound planning and servicing of the water damming and channeling, but reduces the growth of less robust weed and pest plants that have no submerged growth state, and deters vermin. While flooding is not mandatory for the cultivation of rice, all other methods of irrigation require higher effort in weed and pest control during growth periods and a different approach for fertilizing the soil.

Soil

Rice is growing best on alluvial soil and fertile river basins. However, this crop is versatile and can also be grown on mixed soil or loamy and clayey soil as long as enough water and fertilizer are available.

Climate

Temperature between 16°C – 27°C and rainfall 100 cm to 200 cm are ideal for rice growth. However, rainfall during harvest times is harmful. An annual coverage temperature around 24°C is ideal. To germinate, rice seeds need to absorb a certain amount of water to break the dormancy stage of the seed.
