The Ganges Valley
Padi-Fields characterise lowland rice production. Water is irrigated by either the Ganges rains or gravity canals. The rice is then transported when the Monsoon rains flood the fields. The rice is normally harvested in late October and a new crop is grown in November.
The rice crop is very water intensive. 90% of agricultural water in Asia is used for rice production. The terrain here is a terrace which means that it is a levelled section of a hilly cultivated area.
Lots of water is put into this crop, but they get lots of food from it. Because about 75% of the diet around here has rice in it, people buy this crop in large amounts.
Water buffalo are used for work here. But, they are the only draught animal adapted for life in the wetlands. The water buffalo provide a important manure in the fields to help the crops grow.
