Stock photo of Rice Cultivation and close-up image of Asian Rice Plants (Oryza sativa) with maturing grains in an erect and upright position growing in their natural state. Beautiful fresh green leaves surround the rice grains. Rice Cultivation in Asia is everywhere due to its status as a staple food and is to Asians as wheat or potatoes is to the Western World . It grows in abundance in optimal growing conditions in the Asian climate and depending on whether it is tropical or subtropical in mountain areas rice crops do vary according to location. More crops are possible in warmer climes however cooler climes are limited to one crop per year in the summer months hence Rice Cultivation is more productive away from temperate montane areas of Asia.
