Caption: Rice planting in Bali, Indonesia. The cereal rice, Oryza sativa, is the premier food plant of the wet tropical regions of Asia and this planting scene on the island of Bali is typical. Cultivated in flooded paddy fields, varieties of rice are adapted to different water-levels. Rice takes 150-200 days to mature in warm, wet conditions. During its growing period it must be flooded either by monsoon rains or by adequate irrigation. This restricts the cultivation of swamp rice, the usual kind, to level land and terraces. The yield of rice as a cultivated crop is very large, and it is said to be the staple food of one-third of the world's population.
