Product Overview
There are two things that make rice farming meaningful. First, there is a clear relationship between effort and reward, in that the harder you work a rice field, the more it yields. Second, its complexity is akin to running a small business that is composed of a family workforce, who must hedge uncertainty through seed selection, building and managing a sophisticated irrigation system, and at the same time coordinating the complicated process of crop harvesting and crop preparation.
