Landing Features

Rice belongs to the herbal family. In appearance, it resembles a reed. Landing is peculiar. First, the field is moistened until it turns into dirt. Then you can start sowing. To maintain crop growth, it is necessary to establish a complex network of canals, dams and embankments. It will help maintain soil moisture in the desired state. The soil should be covered with a thin layer of water. In order to facilitate the work, often fields are arranged in the mountains.

When installing terraces in mountainous areas, water passes from one field to another. Watering is done using jugs or a special machine. Donkeys drive the irrigation device. Ready rice is different from what we see in the store, in color. It is brown in color, and not white, because it is covered with husk.

Weeds are usually removed manually. But for this it is necessary to drain the water. Its level is usually regulated by a gate. In order to grow 1 kilogram of rice, about 5 thousand liters of water are required.
