Cultivated rice (Oryza sativa) is an annual grass that evolved from a semi-aquatic ancestor. To ensure sufficient water, most rice farmers aim to maintain flooded conditions in their field. Lowland rice is grown in bunded fields (paddies) that are continuously flooded from crop establishment to close to harvest. It grows in sandy loam soils and clay loam soils usually recommended soil is clay loam. The soil needs to be flooded because rice needs a lot of water
