What is Rice?

Rice is a type of grass (genus Oryza) that belongs to a family of plants that includes other cereals such as wheat and corn. Rice grain is rich in nutrients, vitamins, and minerals and is the staple food for more than 3 billion people.

At maturity, the rice plant has a main stem and several tillers. Each productive tiller bears a terminal flowering head or panicle. Plant height varies by variety and environmental conditions, ranging from approximately 0.4 meter (m) to more than 5 m in some floating rice. The morphology of rice is divided into the vegetative phase (including germination, seedling, and tillering stages) and the reproductive phase (including panicle initiation and heading stages).
