India is one of the world’s largest producers of white rice and brown rice, accounting for 20% of all world rice production. Rice is India’s pre-eminent crop, and is the staple food of the people of the eastern and southern parts of the country. Production increased from 53.6 million tons in FY 1980 to 74.6 million tons in year 1990, a 39 percent increase over the decade. By year 1992, rice production had reached 181.9 kg, second in the world only to China with its 182 kg. Since 1950, the increase has been more than 350 percent.
Rice is the most important food crop of India covering about one-fourth of the total cropped area and providing food to about half of the Indian population. This is the staple food of the people living in the eastern and the southern parts of the country, particularly in the areas having over 150 cm annual rainfall. There are about 10,000 varieties of rice in the world out of which about 4,000 are grown in India.
Rice can be cultivated by different methods based on the type of region. But in India, the traditional methods are still in use for harvesting rice. The fields are initially ploughed and then fertilizer is applied which typically consists of cow dung and then the field is smoothed. The seeds are transplanted by hand and then through proper irrigation, the seeds are cultivated. Rice grows on a variety of soils like silts, loams and gravels. It can also tolerate alkaline as well as acid soils. However, clayey loam is well suited to the raising of this crop. Actually the clayey soil can be easily converted into mud in which rice seedlings can be transplanted easily. Proper care has to be taken as this crop thrives if the soil remains wet and is under water during its growing years. Rice fields should be level and should have low mud walls for retaining water. In the plain areas, excess rain water is allowed to inundate the rice fields and flow slowly. Rice raised in the well watered lowland areas is known as lowland or wet rice. In the hilly areas, slopes are cut into terraces for the cultivation of rice. Thus, the rice grown in the hilly areas is known as dry or upland rice. Interestingly, per hectare yield of upland rice is comparatively less than that of the wet rice.
Rice can be grown on a variety of soils including silts, loams and gravels and can tolerate acidic as well as alkaline soils. However, deep fertile clayey or loamy soils which can be easily puddled into mud and develop cracks on drying are considered ideal for raising this crop.
There are around 2,00,000 varieties of rice in India of which around 4,000 are cultivated. The type of rice grown in different parts of India depends on the weather, soil, structure, characteristics and purposes. India has the world’s largest harvesting area for rice. Rice cultivation is found all over India with West Bengal, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Punjab, Odisha and Bihar being the chief rice producing States. Since 1965, around 600 improved varieties of Indica rice have been released for cultivation.
The period of maturity for rice varies between 130 to 160 days depending on the kind of rice and the area in which it is grown. RCPL1-28 and RCPL1-29 are two varieties of rice that are grown in altitudes of 800 to 1,300 meters above sea level and are resistant to blast. RCPL1-87-8 is a variety of rice grown at medium altitudes which is tolerant to iron toxicity. Certain types of rice are grown in specific regions. For example, Basmati Rice is grown in the foothills of the Himalayas, Sona Masuri in Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh, Molakolukulu in Andhra Pradesh, Patna Rice in Bihar and AmbeMohor in Maharashtra. Other popular varieties of rice are Emergency, Champa rice, 1034, IR64, Ponni Rice, Sujatha and Raja Hansa.
