Brief Information on Rice Plantation

Experts say the farmer needs to select the right land for his farm in rice farming. To remain in the rice farming business for a long time, it is advisable that the farmer must choose a site in ecological zones where rice is historically grown. It is proved that it can be locations in geographical zones across the country that can be in the north, east, west, and south.

Moreover, rice farming can be a complicated business and as such, it is important to conduct thorough research before starting to grow. Nonetheless, it is preferable to choose fertile lands with high capacity for water retention, swampy lands and organic matter such as loamy soil.

Rice can be cultivated either through transplantation or direct seeding. Before cultivation, the seeds are sprayed onto the soil after which they are plowed into the soil using a plow. The rice seeds are soaked in water for 34 hours, allowing them to dry for 24 hours after which they are ready to grow.

It takes between 120-200days for the grains to get ready for harvest after planting, depending on the area and other factors, when it’s prepared, the grains will fall off on the stalk from green to golden-yellow.

Before proper harvesting, it is required to dry/evaporate the water stored in the rice paddies and also allow the rice to ripen well.
The rice is then harvested by a mechanized thresher slicing the stalk immediately below the heads and extracting the grains from the stalk. Although much more work still needs to be done.
