2. Upland rice fields are generally dry, unbunded, and directly seeded.

3. Land utilized in upland rice production is low, due to low lying, drought-prone, rolling, or steep sloping.

Deep-water or floating ecosystem of Maharashtra

 

1. Deep-water or floating rice is grown in low-lying areas that may become submerged to depths of 1-5 m during the monsoon or rainy seasons.

2. The stems of floating rice elongate as the water rises and the leaves float on the surface of the water.

3. When water levels are above 100 cm, the crop is known as floating rice, while Tidal Wetlands occur where water levels

2. Production is variable because of the lack of technology used in rice production.

3. Rainfed lowland farmers are typically challenged by poor soil quality, drought/flood conditions, and erratic yields.

Irrigated or flooded ecosystem of Maharashtra

 

1. Irrigated or flooded rice is grown in standing water impounded by bunds or levees. Water needed in excess of that supplied by natural rainfall is provided by irrigation. 2. The depth of water in the paddy seldom exceeds 15 cm. 3. Irrigated ecosystems are the primary type found in East Asia. 4. Irrigated ecosystems provide 75% of Global rice production.
