|Botanical Name:||Oryza Sativa|
There are only two species of cultivated rice in the world, Oryza sativa (Asian rice) and Oryza glaberrima (African rice). Both species are annual grasses (except in the tropics, where the plant can be perennial) belonging to the family Poaceae which are cultivated for their grain which is considered a staple food in most parts of the world. Asian and African rice plants are morphologically very similar and can be difficult to tell apart. They have rounded stems (called culms) which are divided into nodes and internodes.
Rice (Oryza sativa) is the most widely grown tropical cereal, and over 400 million tons of milled rice is produced each year. The importance of rice has been recognized for many centuries – in India it was once known as ‘dhanya’ meaning ‘the sustainer of the human race’. Rice is a staple food of South Asia and a vast number of people are employed in its cultivation. Archaeological and historical evidence suggests that rice spread slower than most crops, in part owing to its specialized need for abundant water. For example, rice did not become an important crop in North America until the late 17th century.
Today, the majority of all rice produced comes from China, India, Indonesia, Vietnam, Bangladesh, Thailand, Myanmar, Philippines, Korea, Pakistan and Japan. Asian farmers still account for 87% of the world’s total rice production. Oryza sativa is cultivated in Europe, Africa, tropical and temperate Asia, Australia, and North and South America.
