Rice Fields

29 Jun

This is a picture of a nice looking rice field I drove by today.


Rice is one crop I refuse to work. They hold a flood of water on the fields all summer long. The water doesn’t hurt the rice, but it keeps weeds from growing in the field. Once they pump the water on for the permanent flood, it becomes foul and stagnant. There are always swarms of mosquitos, as well as lots of snakes! And you have to walk around in that awful water, it smells just like a teenager’s gym locker. Pee-Yew!

    I always wondered why rice fields were filled with water. I never have really been around one enough to know anything about them.

      Rice needs a little water, just like other crops, but the only reason for the flood is weed control.
