The paddy cultivation cycle starts with making the seed ready for sowing. The seed is made ready by dipping it in water mixed with cow-dung and keeping it in the same wet sack for one day; the seeds sprout the next day. These seeds are then spread in the specially ploughed area .Once the seeds are of enough growth, the rice seedlings are transplanted to the paddy fields.which have been flooded by rain or river water. During the growing season, irrigation is maintained .The fields are allowed to drain before cutting.
